Wscript.Echo not working
I have a Run Script step (VBScript) inside my Visual Build project which contains:
Wscript.Echo "Test message"
When i start it in Visual Build the message is shown in the log.
But when I run it command line like this:
"c:\Program Files\VisBuildPro9\VisBuildCmd.exe" /b "c:\Program Files\VisBuildPro9\Test.bld"
the message is now shown in the log.
Any idea why and how can I make it visible ?

It works in my tests. Using the attached project, and building with

"C:\Program Files\VisBuildPro10\VisBuildCmd.exe" D:\temp\test.bld

it outputs

I cannot open\run the test project as I have VisBuildCmd (x64), Version and yours is a newer version.
Would be possible to give me the same test project but version 9.7?

I tried my test project on other machine -wscript.echo worked ,i had the test message in the log.Any idea why on that specific machine the command does not work?Could be some Visual Build setting causing this issue?

Open the .bld file in a text editor and change the version to 9.

I don't know, send the info in the link above and we'll see.

:\Program Files\VisBuildPro9>"c:\Program Files\VisBuildPro9\VisBuildCmd.exe" "c:\Program Files\VisBuildPro9\Test.bld"

In the .config file, set the LogLevel to 3, or in the UI, set Tools | Application Options | Logging (More) | Log Level to Detailed.
