Getting error when creating new instance of Wscript object

Hi,

I performed the following:

require ‘win32ole’

Now, when I create a new instance of Wscript shell object, I get the
following error in the output window:

wsh = WIN32OLE.new(‘Wscript.Shell’)

invokingnotepadwsh.rb:4:in initialize': failed to create WIN32OLE object fromWscript.Shell’ (WIN32OLERuntimeError)
HRESULT error code:0x8007007e
The specified module could not be found. from
invokingnotepadwsh.rb:4:in `new’
from invokingnotepadwsh.rb:4

Exit code: 1

Can anyone please help how to debug this? Is there anything wrong with
the code?

Thanks,
Anukul

This error may occur if your Windows Script installation is corrupted.
You might try reinstalling Windows Script from the Microsoft website.

The OS on my system is Windows Vista. I tried to get WSH5.7 for Windows
Vista but could not get one. Can you please help where I can download
the WSH which is compatible with Windows Vista?

Thanks,
