This script will only run under IE not as a ".vbs" file.

open a notepad & write the following line:

msgbox("Hello World")

save it as Hello.vbs, when you double click, this will display the alert box.

check the following VB script tutorial[^]

Mehdi is right, It'll work only in IE.
Wiki[^] says:
However, other web browsers such as Firefox and Opera do not have built-in support for VBScript. This means that where client-side scripting and cross-browser compatibility are required, developers usually choose JavaScript over VBScript.
For details about the particular Error number, see this
