Scripts are executed from an in application menu.
You need to describe what you mean by 'connecting a program to the API'.

Only if you write VBScript based Perl interpreter and expose every last
neuance of the AlienAPI... which, from what I remember, is not 100%
documented yet! In short, no, VBScript is it.

Yes, Stdout, stderr and stdin all work:
Set stdout = fso.GetStandardStream (1)
Set stderr = fso.GetStandardStream (2)
stdout.WriteLine "Hello, VBScript."
stderr.WriteLine "I could write an error here."
Although, like all things windows, stdin, stdout, stderr are can only
input/output from a file or a console.
