Issue



Using an OnEvent action to launch VBScripts fails because wscript.exe cannot be found when called with the path implied.

For example:

  • OnPostActivate = "wscript.exe Sample_Script.vbs"

Error



Wscript.exe cannot be found.


Environment



Symantec Workspace Virtualization 6.1 SP7 MP1
Windows Vista


Cause



This is a change in behavior from SVS 2.1.3078.


Solution



This issue will be fixed in a future release of Symantec Workspace Virtualization.

The Workaround is to use the full path to wscript.exe

For example:

  • OnPostActivate = "C:\Windows\System32\wscript.exe Sample_Script.vbs"
