I sometimes have to work in environments where I have to use the customer’s PC instead of my laptop. This can be quite frustrating as my laptop is quite heavily customised and has all the tools that I need. One thing I find problematic is having to work with scripts (especially VBScript) without a decent script editor. Notepad doesn’t really cut the mustard. 🙂
If the PC I am assigned to has Office installed I usually fire up the Microsoft Script Editor (MSE7.EXE) when working with scripts. This underutilised editor has a sufficiently rich set of features to make working with VBScript a comfortable experience.
The Microsoft Script Editor is normally installed by default with Office 2007, but is not reachable directly from the Start -> All Programs -> Microsoft Office menu. Instead, you can usually find it by searching for MSE7.EXE on the local drives. On the machine I am working on now, it is installed in the following location:
%programfiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\MSE7.EXE
Thank You for posting this. It is hard to locate this darn file if you did not know where it was located. I was just about to search for MSE?.exe when I found your information. This is useful for quick work with VBS scripts.
Be aware that when running a 64bit version of Vista (or Windows Server 2008), the path will be:
%programfiles(x86)%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\MSE7.EXE
I am trying to edit my Outlook signature to include an HTML link to my fund raising site i have the instructions to opy and pastethe hTMl code into my signature and the picture of the badge will appear. However this needs MS Script Editor and although I followed the file path givn here I still cannot fid Script Editor. I am running Office 2007 with Vista and have spent God knows how many hours on this! any ideas? Thanks a million
Could you not create the HTML signature using MS Word? Word gives you option to “Save as” in HTML format.
Thank you SO MUCH! I was going crazy, I couldn’t find it!
