As the title suggests, I am looking for a Python like interactive shell for Windows Script Host. I want to analyze for example, the object that is returned by GetObject("winmgmts:").InstancesOf("Win32_process"). Currently I need to search on Google and refer to the online documentation. It will be far easier if I could just inspect the object for properties and methods, much like Python provides. I tried to install ActiveScript Shell which was promising, but it refuses to run and the main website of the application is no longer up.

  • The code snippet you've provided, is that VBScript?

  • The code snippet is understood by the Windows Script Host Engine. So VBScript and JScript both can make that particular call. Nov 7, 2019 at 9:07
