What is VBScript? An Active Scripting language that is modeled on Visual Basic. It is an Active Scripting language developed by Microsoft that is modeled on Visual Basic. It allows Microsoft Windows system administrators to generate powerful tools for managing computers with error handling, subroutines, and other advanced programming constructs.

- Open and debuggable
On the other hand, VBScript provides the following key features:
- Typeless Variable Declaration
- Runtime Execution
- Similar Syntax to BASIC languages
