      It possibly could be an issue with the java script and vb script. Try to register the files using the below mentioned steps:
      - Click start
      - Click Run
      - Type regsvr32 jscript.dll and click ok
      - Type regsvr32 vbscript.dll and click ok

      Let us know if this fixed the issue.

      All the best!!!
