This means there is some invalid syntax in the file. Perhaps a
character where there should not be or something like that

Well, for checking the syntax, just fire up a command prompt:
3. type "cmd" (without the quotes)
4. enter. This brings up a command prompt window ala the days of
DOS based computers 12 + years ago.
5. type cscript //e:VBScript [path to script] [ENTER]
You enter the path to your script. IF there are spaces, you will need
to put the entire path to the script in double qoutes. For example:
cscript //e:VBScript c:\program files\Fractal
Would not work, but
cscript //e:VBScript "c:\program files\Fractal
should at least give you something.
When it runs, it should show you the error and usually the line and
column number in parenthesis: (22, 10) would mean the error is "around"
line 22, the 10th character.

I was hoping to get your script from the site this week and begin
playing with it, so no help as of yet.
