Windows Script Host object model

The Windows Script Host (WSH) environment includes a built-in library, WScript, and four COM (Component Object Model)-based libraries: WshShell, WshNetwork, WshController and the Scripting Runtime Library. Together, WScript, WshShell, WshNetwork and WshController are referred to as the WSH Objects. Your scripts access the functionality of these libraries through the WSH Object Model.

Scripts use object models to access features of COM-based libraries. In COM-based libraries an object model documents the features of the library. Scripts call an object's methods and manipulate an object's properties to utilize the features required to accomplish a task.
