How to run API example code

All API example code in this knowledge base is in VBScript (Visual Basic Script). The advantage of using VBScript is that you can run it directly from the command line.

This doesn’t mean that Auron Software components can only by used in VBScript. In fact, you can use them from almost any programming language. The API works exactly the same in C#, VB.Net, C++, ASP, PHP, Delphi or any other programming language.

To run a VBScript example you only need a text editor and a (trial) version of the product you’re looking at.

Simply follow these steps:

1. Copy and paste the example into notepad.

2. Save the file in a convenient location on your hard disk. For example: C:\Auron\example.vbs

3. Open a new command line window and navigate to this location ‘cd c:\Auron’

4. Run with this command line: ‘cscript example.vbs’.

This is an easy way to demonstrate the Auron Software API’s and experiment with them without the need for any 3rd party software.
