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
