What is the Windows Scripting Host?

A. The Windows Scripting Host (WSH) is a tool that will allow you to run Visual Basic Scripting Edition and JScript within the base Operating System, either on Windows 95 or Windows NT 4.0. Using the scripting languages you already know you can now write script to automate common tasks, and to create powerful macros and logon scripts.

Windows NT 5.0 natively supports the Windows Scripting Host.
