VB stands for visual basic, while VBScript stands for Visual Basic Scripting Edition. VB is easy to master as a programming language. It comes from Microsoft and is exclusively used for its programming models-COM.

It employs the component object model to retrieve elements of the environment in which it is running. The VBScript environment is useable in other programs through such technologies as Microsoft Script control. VB was created to come as naturally as a language for programming beginners.

Because of its simplicity, it is adept in allowing both programs to make basic GUI applications and utilize complex applications. VBScript works a lot like JavaScript. VBScript is known to produce applications that run directly on a user’s device if that computer is running Microsoft Windows.

VB is a shortened form of Visual Basic, which is a kind of programming language that is event-driven. It is an Integrated Development Environment that is made by Microsoft. Due to its graphical development feature and BASIC heritage, it seems to be a form program that provides simpler language. Visual Basic allows for RAD (or Rapid Application Development) of GUI applications. It also enables access to databases using ActiveX Data Objects, Remote Data Objects, or Data Access Objects. Lastly, it enables the creation of ActiveX objects and controls. In contrast, VBScript, also known as Visual Basic Scripting Edition, is also developed by Microsoft as an Active Scripting language.it accesses the environment’s elements in which it is running by using the Component Object Model. It is installed as part of the Microsoft Windows Server on every Microsoft Windows Computers by default. VBScript functions just as a language that writes executable functions embedded in HTML pages.

VB is known to be a type of programming language that can be used when you are using compiled applications. You will be using VBscript if you would be using a set of programming languages that will be used to run different commands.

This can be used to run different DOS files too. Some people are also familiar with VBScripting as Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition. With the use of VBScripting, it will make sure that there are different tools that can be used for managing different computers. The more that the constructs will be used, the better. Take note that VBScript is considered to be outdated right now.

VB is the short form of Visual Basic, and it is one of the events driven programming languages available. Visual basic is mostly used to detect events as they occur, and it is very easy to develop. Visual basic ensures the creation of an integrated development environment that helps in providing a perfect selection of objects and controls that are inbuilt.

You can also automate code production by using VB. On the other hand, VBScript is an example of a scripting language that can be used to make use of the elements of the environment in which running or executing because it is using the Component Object Model, and that is why it is often regarded as an object-based language. With VBScript, you can create your own application as long as you have it on windows. Vbscript can also be used to create dynamic WebPages. While VBScript can be used for multiple assignments, VB cannot do this.
