I use a 64-bit VbsEdit on my Windows 7 computer to debug my VBScript code.

Sometimes I need to run the scripts in 32-bit mode (C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\wscript.exe).

Can I force VbsEdit to use the 32-bit script engine?

  • Try to launch it from a 32-bit command prompt by running %windir%\SysWoW64\cmd.exe. If this works, you may create a desktop shortcut for it that uses cmd with the /c parameter. – harrymc Jul 18 '18 at 6:51
  • I just saw that VbsEdit seemed to have installed a 64-bit and also a 32-bit version. Running the 32-bit version of VbsEdit works - it uses the 32-bit VB runtime. – juergen d Jul 18 '18 at 11:31
  • My above comment was made in order to help find out if a 32-bit version exists for VbsEdit. Was it useful for that? – harrymc Jul 18 '18 at 19:18
  • It was......... – juergen d Jul 18 '18 at 20:00
  • I have incorporated it in an answer. – harrymc Jul 18 '18 at 20:28

I don't use VbsEdit, but in an attempt to discover if it has a 32-bit version, I have asked the poster to launch it from a 32-bit Command Prompt (%windir%\SysWoW64\cmd.exe).

The poster has reported that such a version does exist, so is now able to launch directly the 32-bit executable or to continue to use it from the 32-bit Command Prompt.
