OffScrub_O16msi - Office Deployment


  • Total newbie here with VBscript..

    Why is this Microsoft script failing immediately with a compilation error (Line 1, Char 1) ?

    I'm running it via CMD with the following: csript offscrub_o16msi.vbs /q /nocancel /bypass 1

    Here are the first 39 lines (only posting this because it's over 1700 in length. Any help would be extremely appreciated.
