Hi all

I need to find a tool to edit old WSE-scripts.

What tool would you recommend?

Purchasing an entire WPS-suite is probably to expensive. I just need the script tool.

Best Regards,

You will spend more time sourcing a tool like this - and the likelihood of there being one is remote in the extreme - than you would by moving the functionality of the scripts to a current technology like Powershell. WiseScript - like its parent product(s) - is dead.

Don't know why 'x' happened? Want to know why 'y' happened? Use ProcMon and it will tell you.

My problem is, that in order to move the functionality, I need to be able to open the old wse-files to se what they do.

Unfortunately I have several hundred old scripts that may need to be converted in the near future.

If you have an AdminStudio License you can get the Editor here:

Well ... you can "get" it without a license ... but you might not be able to install/run it.

The WSE files are text files - you can pretty much figure out what they are doing by opening the WSE in a text editor.

You could also look for an old copy of SMS Installer from the SMS Server 2000 installation disk or even from the internet, as this was also a Wisescript editor albeit licensed from Wise by Microsoft. You may need to change the file extension from WSE to whatever SMS Installer used, but if the original Wisescript editor was V9 or earlier, the command sets were pretty much identical.

Let me know if you need further assistance here.

If you have DS 6.9 you should have a Wise Editor I believe.
