As early as 2017, Microsoft announced that it would begin phasing out VBScript, a script language dating back to 1996. In those days, Microsoft had its own script language, such as JScript, which was a substitute for JavaScript.

VBScript is based on pre. NetNet Basic, which is the abbreviation of Visual Basic Script, which can be regarded as a simplified version of VB language. It has the characteristics of easy to learn in the original language. At present, this language is widely used in the production of web pages and ASP programs, and can be used as an executable program. It is very convenient for debugging simple VB statement.


Now VBScript is over its life cycle. Beginning with this month's Patch Tuesday or August 13 cumulative updates, Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 will disable VBScript by default. Windows 10 has already stopped supporting it in the cumulative updates of July 9.

Windows OfficialBlog articlesIt is pointed out that if this scripting language is still needed, VBScript can be enabled or disabled in IE 11 by configuring the site security area by registry or group policy. After updating, the Internet and Untrusted regions will be disabled by default.

Obviously, some companies still rely on such old scripting languages, but this ban will start to push them up and forward.
