Windows Script 5.7 Setup Error

leave a comment »

You download the Windows Script 5.7 for Windows Server 2003, then you try to install it on windows 2003 64Bit version OS, when you do that you get the following error message:

Windows Script Setup Error
This Windows Script is for a different hardware platform.

This error is expected in windows 2003 64bit version since that the Windows Script 5.7 for Windows Server 2003 download is for Windows 2003/32Bit versions.

Solution:
Request and download the hotfix from KB955360.
Install the hotfix and reboot the system. after reboot verify that you are on 5.7 version by typing from cmd:
cscript.exe
or
wscript.exe

DONE!!!
🙂
