Question: How do you remove the error “There is no script engine for file extension .vbs” while installing PSoC® Designer™?
One of following methods will resolve this problem:
Register the vbscript.dll module by following these steps:
- Open a Command Prompt window.
- In Windows® XP, click Start, Run, and type cmd.exe.

If the steps given above are not working and you have used McAfee® products in your machine earlier, then run the McAfee Consumer Product Removal (MCPR) tool by following steps given here (If you have not used McAfee products, then try method 3):
- Download the MCPR tool and save it to a folder on your computer.
- Navigate to the folder where you saved the file, and double-click MCPR.exe.
- When you see the User Account Control dialog box, click Yes.
- At the McAfee Software Removal screen, click Next.
- At the End User License Agreement (EULA) dialog box, click Next to accept the agreement.
- When prompted, type the Captcha information, which is case-sensitive, to validate to application security, and then click Next.
- If you have Family Protection installed, type your Administrator user name and password and click Next.
- If you cannot authenticate, follow the on-screen instructions to obtain an uninstall code. If you do not have Family Protection installed, you will not receive this authentication prompt.
- When you see the message CleanUp Successful, restart your computer. Your McAfee product will not be fully removed until after the restart.
