CAUSE


This issue occurs when the script contains a CDATA sequence in a CDATA section. When the ]]> sequence appears in a CDATA section, the XML parser interprets the sequence as the end of the section. Therefore, the sequence is not processed.

 


WORKAROUND


To work around this issue, run the script by using the CScript.exe command-based script host. For more information about how to use CScript.exe, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
