The problem has to do with proper registration (or lack thereof) of wshom.ocx.
This is discussed elsewhere in this group ("WSH 5.6 Beta 1 is released" thread).
I had the problem on 3 different win95 machines. Win2000 seems to install properly.
Although not recommended, I have found that just replacing the new (5.6b1) wshom.ocx
with the 5.5 version restores you to a working wsh (albeit with an older and less
wsh). You also have to register it again (via regsvr32.exe)
Documentation is forthcoming .... soon ..... right MS scripting personel ??? :-)
