Unable to run vbs on WinVista Home

I get an error that windows doesn't know what program to use to run vbs so I can't do anything with the script at all.

any ideas?

Link to screenshot:

Found the answer to re-enabling VBS scripting on Vista:

HERE. I ended up using the registry file, as the first options didn't work correctly on my system.

The thing is though that I did create the shortcut and add my username to the end of the Target path.

Unfortunately I may just have to give up on this plugin
There's still mystery to this why it doesn't always work smoothly. I will try to make the vbs more robust . Did you check that the Music directory mentioned in the popup actually exists, or could it be that your documents folder has been relocated to someplace else? (heh just being hopeful here)

This is the error I'm getting:



You said something about case-sensitivity in the Target field... does it perhaps matter that my LOTRO username is lowercase?

This version of the vbs script should tell you where it tries to save data.

not only did it show where it saved it also just simply works hehe. the songbookdata file was created this time. btw you were correct in my previous file only being the settings file it was saving and not the data one too. but it all works with this new .vbs file so thanks!

Oh, that sounds like the contents of SongbookSettings.plugindata. Are you sure there's also SongbookData.plugindata? If not, that would mean that the plugin can save there just fine but the vbs script cannot. So perhaps it's looking for that directory in the wrong place, but as to why... clueless so far .

Is the file empty then? Does it contain anything if you look at it in notepad?

-Chiran

hmm..not really i guess>>>

Code:
"return 
{
	["WindowOpacity"] = "0.9",
	["WindowPosition"] = 
	{
		["Top"] = 183.000000,
		["Height"] = 500.000000,
		["Left"] = 815.000000,
		["Width"] = 360.000000
	}
}"

For some reason or other, it cannot save the song database to the correct location. It should try to create the directory if it doesn't exist. However, you could check to make sure it exists. The place it tries to save data to is:
C:\Users\<windowsuser>\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\PluginData\<lotrouser>\AllServers\

Above applies for Vista and Windows 7. Windows XP is a bit different.

The database file there is called SongbookData.plugindata.

Please would you explain the vbs file and how to access it? I am not a programmer and I have read the readme file numerous times and tried several things but after several hours I still cannot figure out what to do to get the songbook up and running. Thank you.
This plugin requires a few extra steps since otherwise it wouldn't be possible at all. So, I hope you bear with me . When you unzip the package according to the instructions, the Songbook.vbs file should be in the plugin directory at c:\Users\<windowsuser>\Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\Plugins\Chiran\ (With windows XP the path is a bit different).

And here's the instructions from a couple posts back.

Easiest way to run the script is:
1) Right click songbook.vbs and choose 'Create a shortcut'. It creates a shortcut file (.lnk). You can rename the file if you like.
2) Right click the created shorcut file, select Properties, click Target field and add a space and your Lotro username at the end. Username is what you use when you log in to Lotro. Plugins use the username as a directory name when saving your plugin settings. The target field should then read, for example: "C:\Users\Chiran\Desktop\songbook.vbs" Chiran Then click Ok.
3) You can then move the shortcut file where ever you like, for example to your desktop. Double clicking the shortcut will run the script. Run it whenever you have added or deleted abc files.
4) Done .
