IE11 and VB script

If you wonder why your VB script has stopped working with IE11, it is because it is no longer supported.

As of Internet Explorer 11, VBScript is considered deprecated and should no longer be used as a scripting language for IE11.


Because VBScript is no longer supported for IE11 edge mode, the following API features are no longer available to webpages:

  • The execScript function.
  • The VBArray object.
  • The "text/vbs" and "text/vbscript" MIME types (as supported type values for script elements).

Update any pages that currently rely on VBSscript to use JavaScript.

This is true for the webpages in any security zone.

In case you want to work around this, you can run the website in compatibility mode.


Till next time, Bye.
