How can I check if my vbscript is running within the IDE

Postby Rodent » Mon Sep 14, 2015 6:17 pm

Hi,

Is there a way to detect if my vb script has been run from within the Primal Script IDE or not.

I would like to suppress the running of some code that will not run if running from within the IDE as the script will be compiled into an EXE and the code will run ok.

Thanks
Rodney

PrimalScript uses WScript or CScript to run a VBScript, so that is not really distinguishable from running it from a command window.

You can use WScript.Name to see what the host is.
If it returns "Windows Script Host" it is run from the command line or from within PrimalScript.
If it returns "SAPIEN Script Host" it runs in a packaged executable.
if it returns "PrimalScript Internal Script Host" it runs in the debugger.
