VBScript setup

    How do I setup Notepad++ to write VBScript + WScript.
    Downloaded portable Notepad++ <24 hours ago.
    I have searched Notepad++ web pages for somewhere to start.

    Unfortunately the http://notepad-plus-plus.org/demo.html link does not work.

    For the last 3 years I have used "Metapad", obviously no intellisence?
    Writing VBA since 199x

    Would appreciate some pointers ... thank you. :)

    How do I flag to be emailed for all replies ?
    Found "Subscriptions" page but options are meaningless to me.
    Thanks again

    Hi grayghost2,

    if you want to set code highlighting for Visual basic, just go to Languages / V / VB.
    If your file has extension .vb or .vbs, code highlighting will be applied automatically.

    Thank you Loreia for your response, :)

    I am good to go with VBScript. What about WScript how is that included ?

    Also... I did not receive an email to notify me of your post in this thread.
    How do I ensure I receive notification emails for any thread I am "following" ?

    I don't know what WScript is. Quick Goole search didn't help much. Can you explain what is it? A dialect of VB maybe?

    You can subscribe to this thread by clicking on third icon in the row where thread name is (it looks like wireless network icon), but SF isn't very reliable with notifications. At least in my experience with it.
