CScript Error: Can't find script engine "VBScript" -alternate solution fix

CScript Error: Can't find script engine "VBScript" for script "C:\Windows\system32\slmgr.vbs".This was preventing the Software Licensing Service in Vista\ Windows 7\ XP doing what it needs to - and consequently giving rise to the non-genuine message, despite a perfectly genuine install.

The conventional response is to re-register the dll using
regsvr32 vbscript.dll

This works fine in many instances - but in this case, although the registration gave rise to the 'succeeded' message, as it should (thereby showing that the dll was present), there was no change in the response from MGADiag. Click on read more for reslolution.

Copy and paste the below code in a notepad and save as export.reg, after saving, double click on the file to import it to the registry and restart your computer:-

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Disclaimer : The above code has been mentioned in one of the forums I do not rememeber now but I thought of posting the same as it can be very useful.
