This is a general scripting error, which happens due to missing Windows Script runtime library, or it's registration is missing. First, see if this command helps:

regsvr32 scrrun.dll

Type the above command in Start, Run and press Enter. Restart Windows. If scrrun.dll file is missing, or if the above registration does not help, you may need to download and install the latest Scripting update from Microsoft site. Download links are provided below:
