Quirks of VBScript

A couple of things I’ve learnt recently:

Variables of a single character don’t get picked up with Option Explicit. This is definitely worth knowing!

Running either

Set Shell = wscript.createObject("wscript.shell")


Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")

Will generally work, however they don’t seem to work consistently.

Set Shell = CreateObject("wscript.shell")


Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")

Will work much better. I’m not sure why this is!
