In order to modify custom script files, you need to load them into a text file or script editor. While Notepad.exe is a capable text file editor, you may find the script file much easier to read and modify within a syntax highlighting (color-coding) script editor.
- If you have Microsoft Visual Basic or Visual Studio installed on your system, open the .txt files with either of these programs to view the files with syntax highlighting.
- If you do not have access to a syntax highlighting editor, SolarWinds recommends downloading one from the Internet.
Once installed, change the highlighting settings to open a custom script .txt or .custom file with syntax highlighting for MS VBScript language.
For instructions on configuring your text editor to apply syntax highlighting for the Microsoft VBScript language, refer to your editor's reference materials or support forum.
