Can't find script engine "VBScript" for script


  • microsoft fix it - remove office 2007 - 2010 does nothing when you run it.

    I run the msi and click the next button and it says it is "Now ready to remove office" and when you hit the next button to get going you see a dos box come up and then nothing. I have run the fix its from this page

    I have downloaded them and run them by double clicking and all the other ways I can come up with and nothing happens. The program goes thrugh its normal "except this aggreement" and the regular stuff but once it is supposed to start it errors out.

    Can't find script engine "VBScript" for script " path here \OffScrub10.vbs

    Things I have done to try and fix it.:

    C:\Windows\System32>regsvr32 vbscript.dll

    C:\Windows\SysWOW64>regsvr32 vbscript.dll

    both say registered fine.


    At that key in the right window is there a Value (Default) of type REG_SZ with a "Data" of VB Script Language

    Also check the following registry key:

  • Hi,

    Do you mean you are trying to install Windows Installer Cleanup utility? Please notice that this tool is not suggested now.

    If the Microsoft Fixit could not help uninstall Office, then I sugguest contact Office support for more information.

    As this forum focuses on Windows Vista specific issues, this inquiry would best be posted to Office forum:

    The reason why we recommend posting appropriately is you will get the most qualified pool of respondents, and other partners who read the forums regularly can either share their knowledge or learn from your interaction with us.  Thank you for your understanding.
