Once upon a time, Microsoft used its own scripting language like Jscript. Jscript was Microsoft’s own version of JavaScript. Microsoft also deployed another scripting language such as VBScript. While Jscript was Microsoft’s own version of Java, VBScript was based on pre-.Net Visual Basic.

 In 2017, the Redmond based tech giant decided to gradually disable VBScript. Finally, Microsoft has disabled VBScript for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1. The Cumulative updates of the above-mentioned versions of Windows will roll out this month on August 13, with Patch Tuesday. VBScript will be disabled in all such updates. As for Windows 10, VBScript was already disabled in July 9, 2019 in one of the Cumulative Updates for Windows 10.

Users can enable VBScript anytime they want. By default, it has been turned off, but the feature is existent in Windows. Users can enable it back using Registry Editor, Local Group Policy Editor and Restricted Sites. When the Cumulative Updates for Windows 7, 8.1 and 8.1 arrive, VBScript will be disabled by default for Internet and Untrusted Zones.
