The WshRemoteError object is returned by the Error property of the WshRemote object.

Legacy Code Example

The following example demonstrates how the WshRemoteError object is used to show where the error occurred in the script along with a description of the error.

Dim Controller, RemoteScript
Set Controller = WScript.CreateObject("WSHController")
Set RemoteScript = Controller.CreateScript("test.js", "remoteserver")
WScript.ConnectObject RemoteScript, "remote_"
RemoteScript.Execute

Do While RemoteScript.Status <> 2 
    WScript.Sleep 100
Loop

WScript.DisconnectObject RemoteScript

Sub remote_Error
    Dim theError
    Set theError = RemoteScript.Error
    WScript.Echo "Error " & theError.Number & " - Line: " & theError.Line & ", Char: " & theError.Character & vbCrLf & "Description: " & theError.Description
    WScript.Quit -1
End Sub
var Controller = WScript.CreateObject("WSHController");
var RemoteScript = Controller.CreateScript("test.js", "remoteserver");
WScript.ConnectObject(RemoteScript, "remote_");
RemoteScript.Execute();

while (RemoteScript.Status != 2) {
    WScript.Sleep(100);
}

WScript.DisconnectObject(RemoteScript);

function remote_Error()
{
    var theError = RemoteScript.Error;
    WScript.Echo("Error " + theError.Number + " - Line: " + theError.Line + ", Char: " + theError.Character + "\nDescription: " + theError.Description);
    WScript.Quit(-1);
}
