CSCript and WScript are executable files for the scripting host that are used to execute scripts. CSCript and WScript are both interpreters to run VBScript (and other scripting languages such as JScript) on the Windows platform.
What is Cscript.exe?
On Windows, an executable file is either a console application or a Windows application (or a SFU or native application, but that doesn’t matter here).
The kernel checks a flag in the executable to determine which one.
If the kernel creates a console window when the CreateProcess WinAPI function starts, if it is a console application, it creates a console window if the parent process does not have one, and adds the STDIN, STDOUT and STDERR flows to the console.
