create external task on QMC (VB)

hi all,

I have a VB script stored on its own on one of my drives. I can simply double click on it to run. need to schedule it using QMC external task and add trigger on it. I have done many of those for exe and ps1 files but not vb.

the task is failing and I guess it is due to the command line statement being wrong..

"E:\Data\file.vbs"

any idea if I need to add any wording here?

I am actually looking within the QMC outside of the apps.I found that I need to add wscript then wrap the command line statement with "".

Try this:

SET vCSCRIPT = 'c:\windows\system32\cscript.exe';

EXECUTE $(vCSCRIPT) "D:\ReadAndWriteExcelSheets.vbs";
