Managing Custom ScriptsManaging Custom Scripts

 

Custom script files are used to configure the software settings, trigger events, etc in the computer of a network. The custom script files can be batch (.bat), command (.cmd), Windows Script Host (WSH) files. The WSH files includes the VBScript (.vbs), Java Script (.js),  Perl (.php), REXX, and Python files.
