Is it possible that the script will do the job to automatically copy the dll to "system32"? I mean, the script will run from an autorun and that script will copy that dll to system32 automatically. Is it possible through vbscript? or other scripts will do.
another thing, can that script do multiple things? I mean, one: it will copy automatically the dll and second: it will run an exe file which is an installer.

Which script are you referring to?

Most likely, WSH. I answered, please see.

You should never write to system32. No excuse.

You could if you're running as admin. However, copying an alien DLL to system32 doesn't look innocent to me :)

There is absolutely no reasons to do so.

Of course the script would be able do it all, if it is run under Windows Script Host, CSCRIPT.EXE.
Please see:[^],[^].

However, I'm not sure those manipulations with executable files make sense. I feel that if you shared your ultimate goal, you could get better advice.

Also, alternatively, I would recommend to use newer Windows PowerShell:[^],[^].

You could develop your own cmdlets using full access to the system and programming model using the API.
