disabling VBScript Internet-Explorer-11

In 2017, Microsoft announced the process of disabling VBScript in Internet Explorer 11.

VBScript is a scripting language that takes us back to 1996. Microsoft has its own scripting language such as JScript, an option to Javascript. However, JScript was based upon Microsoft’s own exclusive version of Java, VBScript, as the name recommends, was based upon pre-. Net Visual Basic.

Disabling VBScript will take into effect with the upcoming cumulative update for Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 on August 13th, 2019. It will be disabled for IE 11. It will also for WebOCs for Internet and untrusted zones. It was already turned off for Windows 10 on July 9th cumulative updates.

In Windows Blog, the team stated that there would also be settings to enable VBScript if anyone needs to use the legacy scripting language via per-site security, via Group Policy, or via Registry.

Disabling VBScript is the push to move on for the businesses who still rely on the legacy scripting language.
