Can anyone reccommend a free VBScript editor

jimmy-jam
I have been doing all my scripts in notepad and was wondering if there is a free script editor out there that would be more useful. I know there are products out there like PrimalScript but my employer will not spend the money to purchase a script editor and I sure ain't dropping $180 of my own money.

I would probably be willing to spend a nominal amount if there is a decent one out there.

I do use PrimalScript mostly now but the unregistered version of Adersoft VbsEdit does at least give the different colours and recognises commands and has context-sensistive Help even if you don't get the debugging.

Only 49 of your dollar things for a registered copy. That used to be about ?2 before our currency went down the pan...

I'm happy with <a href="http://www.scriptcode.com/vbscripteditor/">ExeScript Pro VBScript Editor</a>. It has a number of useful functions, allowing to edit, compile and debug scripts, as well as search and apply COM objects. Also it can convert your script into exe file.

Notepad++
http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/site.htm

It is free and I am fairly certain it supports VBScript.

SKDTech, thanks for the tip. I was also looking for a freebie; this looks good.
