Default Is it possible to sign a VBScript - Need help


I wrote a WSH script to modify the proxy settings of the browser by changing the registry. All is fine if I invoke the file locally by opening it in IE.

But, if I take the script to a server and download the page on my IE, as I expected, the script failed to work.

I was wondering if there is anyway I can sign the script so that IE just executes without complaining ? There were few articles that explained how to sign a WSH script to be run by a WSH script engine. However, I'm not sure if you could sign a WSH script to be run by IE host ?

Apart from scripting, is there anyother way I can acheive this?

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Although you easily sign scripts that are standalone I don't think this helps when they are run with IE as a host. The alternative is to put your site into "Trusted Sites" or "Local Intranet" security zone. You users will have to do this unless you can add it via a login script or similar, I don't know if this is possible in your case.
These two zones normally have lower security settings so your script should run. One more thing to be aware of is that you cannot use the"Wscript" object directly if the code is run in IE. This means things like "Wscript.sleep" etc. will need to be re-written.
