How to call VBScripts by Universal Forwader ?

I have a question about calling VBScripts in Universal Forwarder(UF).

We already have many VBScripts for monitoring a system.
And we want to use these VBScripts in Splunk.

It seemes that UF and Splunk App for Windows is able to call batch scripts by [script] stanza,
but not VBScripts.

Is it capable ?
Or should I prepare batch scripts as wrapper ?

A wrapper is the way to go here, if you want Splunk to be the scheduler. The alternative is to schedule the scripts to run separately and write the output to a file that Splunk is monitoring.
