If you need to run both a batch file and a VBScript, the most simple method is to have, two separate files and run one from another, but that does require both the scripts to be in the same folder (or in some known location)
A hybrid script is a single script containing both batch commands and VBscript commands, the way this normally works is to use redirection to create a temporary vbscript file.
For example to generate a one line VBScript containing wscript.echo "Hello world", you can do
Echo wscript.echo "Hello world" > %temp%\~hi.vbs
cscript //nologo %temp%\~hi.vbs
The variable %temp% will expand to the users temporary files folder.
Writing longer hybrid scripts can involve a lot of Echo and redirection commands, one for every line, so there are several techniques which can be used to make this less verbose, using variables to hold the repeated commands/options, or as below using a comment ('VBS) at the end of every VBScript line and then using Findstr to extract the VBScript.
The expression %~f0 resolves to the full path of the batch file, so this allows the script to search itself:
@Echo off Setlocal Echo This is a Batch file FINDSTR /E "'VBS" "%~f0 >%temp%\~temp.vbs cscript //nologo %temp%\~temp.vbs Del %temp%\~temp.vbs Echo All Done. EXIT Sub Demo 'VBS wscript.echo "Welcome to VBScript" 'VBS End Sub 'VBS demo 'VBS wscript.quit 0 'VBS
“I've actually made a prediction that within 30 years a majority of new cars made in the United States will be electric. And I don't mean hybrid, I mean fully electric” ~ Elon Musk
