I'm trying to figure out how to run the vbs from a cmd file. Specifically Paul365's quicklaunch script, but I think I'm having trouble with any vbs scripts. If I double click on a script, it works fine. However if I execute it from my install.cmd file then it opens the taskbar and start menu properties. Is there a certain command line to run vbs files from a cmd file?

You should be able to just do:

START /WAIT CScript <path>\<filename>.vbs //NoLogo

Where <path> and <filename> are filled in appropriately for your script.

I've noticed that depending on where you are executing your VBSes from, Windows decides it can't find START. If this is the case, use:

%windir%\system32\cmd.exe /C "START /WAIT CScript <path>\<filename>.vbs //NoLogo"

That will explicitly tell it where cmd is so it won't be silly and can find start.
