Windows 10’s built-in scripting capabilities allow you to use the full range of its powerful scripting features to build complex web apps.
The most important of these are the built-ins and plugins that let you write your own scripting libraries, run tests and interact with the web, but there are also a number of other powerful scripting options built in to Windows 10.
Here’s what you need to know about scripting in Windows 10, from how to install it to how to get started.
What is scripting?
Windows Scripting Hosting (WSH) is a powerful feature that lets you create, manage and distribute your own scripts and templates to your clients, and to your customers, and let you run tests on your own websites, and even run them on your customers.
WSH has been in Windows for a while, and its a pretty straightforward feature to install, so you can start using it right away.
If you’ve never installed it, you can find more details on the WSH installation process in our article Installing WSH.
What are the advantages of using WSH?
WSH is great for a number different reasons.
WSHC is an online template that lets developers easily write a template for any application or service in Windows.
WSHO is a web hosting solution that lets administrators set up an account to host websites, such as WordPress, WordPress, or Drupal.
You can also create your own template, like a blog, and host it yourself, which is great if you want to write a new site in a different language, but don’t want to use a standard website hosting service.
WSCL is a new scripting tool that lets admins add web-based functionality to their existing applications.
WSSC is a framework for creating scripts and frameworks, and WSEC is a free, open source scripting tool for building scripts.
There’s even an extension for Visual Studio called Scripting Explorer.
What’s the difference between WSH and WSHHC?
WSHC and WSHCHC are both available as part of Windows 10 as a separate, standalone application.
WSHT is a WSHC extension that can be installed by adding the WSHC installation package to the taskbar.
The WSHC component lets you use WSH, WSHSC, or any other WSHC or WSHCL extension, so it’s really important to install WSHC as a standalone app first.
You’ll also need to install the WSHDB extension to your system.
The main difference between these two components is that the WSHT component is hosted in a subfolder of the WSSC installation folder, and the WSHS component is a standalone application that is installed with Windows 10 itself.
What kind of web services are supported by WSHC?
There are many web services built in Windows, and they are often called “shell services” or “web services”.
WSHC lets you write and run scripts on any application running on Windows.
A typical shell service is a script that executes a single command.
WSHE lets you define an executable file that runs as a script.
A web service is one that takes a webpage as input and returns results, and a web service can also be used to perform HTTP requests and handle incoming and outgoing traffic.
There are also web services that are not web services, such a RESTful service that can run code on an HTML page, or a mobile-first API that can provide real-time data to a mobile app.
How do I install WSH for Windows 10?
WSHT and WSHS are available as a stand-alone application for Windows.
The installation process is similar to that for other WSH extensions, so install WSHT first.
Next, install the latest version of WSH: WSHC.
The easiest way to do this is by using the Command Prompt.
Once you’re in the Command Line, right-click the WSHE extension and select Properties.
Select the Compatibility tab.
Select Install this update… in the context of the application that you want installed.
Once installed, WSHT should be listed as a recommended update.
You should also check for updates and security updates, because this could affect the way your application runs.
You might also want to run a command prompt to verify that the update is installed correctly, or to view the current state of the service.
The Command Prompt should display something like the following: Installing wshh-shell-service-x86-64-wsl-win10-3.0.0-rc1-generic.msi WSHT installed successfully.
Configuring WSHT For a WSHT installation to work, you must run it as an administrator.
To do this, go to the WSHO installation folder and right-clicking the WSSH extension and choosing Properties.
Choose Update Installation… from the context menu, then select Install Now.
This will download and install the updated WSSH-shell service for you.
You will see the following message appear: Configuring WSHHS for Windows…
