Ok, there is the challenge, Win32 users;

Any Win32 user, feel free to confirm (give the version while you are at it.)

Of course, it would be a problem to use JScript, since MS is depreciating
the default distribution of that scripting engine in XP.  Although Perl works
very nicely, it's not installed by default.  Which leaves ... VB.  At least
the had the common sense to add the Option Explicit pragma, so that it works
rather like a real language.
