So, I was trying to set up a really simple batch file to do some really simple file copying, but of course, these things steam roll and now I’m completely out of the realm of the batch.
The next progression is to create a simple VBScript that I can then call from that old batch file. The work is coming along alright, but bumpy. I need a proper VBScript editor, stat.
I’m working in a VBA editor currently, and although I can run VBScript, I can’t debug it properly. I’ve tried a few “free” tools. VBSEdit would probably do the trick, but I can’t pay for it. Same goes or a few other “free” to use options, that really just drive you nuts until you pay for a full version.
Notepad++ would probably also be an option, but it doesn’t natively work with VBS. I had to set up a run command in NPP so that I could at least run the .vbs files from wscript, but that’s not a proper debug environment. I found some posts showing a regedit fix that would work, but I don’t have rights to mess with regedit on my work laptop.
So that’s my pickle. If anyone knows a truly free and good VBS editor, please send me ze linkzorz.

This drives me crazy.
A developer posts a question to a forum asking for advice on a project they are working on and they receive responses like this:
In this particular post, the individual wanted to know if there was a way to add line numbers to their editor in Visual Basic for Applications. There is, unfortunately, no way to do that in VBA. I’ve heard there are tools that you can install/add that allow it, but it isn’t natively a part of the editor.
So instead of just answering that question, this user has to make some asinine comment like this.
Please, either answer the question or don’t, people.
