How to implement calling this script via click on button?(no Windows Scripting installed)

You need Windows Scripting installed to run the code. Just paste the code into a new text document and save it as sethome.vbs (or notepadsendto.vbs).

I meant try implement run script from web page. No Windows Scripting installed. Does it possible? Is this syntax correct:

tag script language="VBScript" tag
sub myRegWriteX
set regedit = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

' home page URL
StartPage = "http://www.google.co.uk"
WSHShell.RegWrite "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page", StartPage
WSHShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page", StartPage

end sub
tag /script tag

You can't edit the registry from a web page. You can set the homepage, but it requires intervention by the user (allowing 'active content' and clicking a link).

I have updated the page to hopefully clarify things a bit.

well, i want try..
Where script need goes, inside header tags, or in body?
Is the syntax OK:

SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript"

Dim WSHShell
Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

' home page URL
StartPage = "http://www.google.co.uk"
WSHShell.RegWrite "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page", StartPage
WSHShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\Start Page", StartPage


/SCRIPT

Syntax is fine. It would go in the head tag

how to implenemt the following small improvement: once executed, script first checks to see does the following url "http://www.google.co.uk" is set already in registry key or not.
(since before this page could be set already).

If the key present already -then exit, not affected.
