I had a few VBS scripts written to control an electronic dusplay application on my Win XP Pro (French version) machine. Scripts won't work at all. But when I run them on a computer with an English versilon of Windows they run fine. Why?

With all due respect it's almost certainly something to do with the way the script has been coded.
Without seeing any scripts or error messages or anything like that, can't suggest anything else.

Sorry about that. Here is one of the scripts...I've changed the extension from VBS to TXT to enable upload.

Also, I did not mention that no error messages appear. I simply won't run properly.
The routine starts when I drop a .SDV file onto the script's icon. Then the first part of the script opens the application (Dztp...) but then, when it comes to the part where it should open the FILE menu, the OPEN nothing happens. The part where the file is selected (WshShell.SendKeys Filename) does not function also. The rest of the script should send the contents of the SDV file to the LED display unit.

But, on an English (US) version of Windows, the script works fine.
