Assuming you have Windows 2000, XP, Vista, or Windows 7, try the following:
cscript /nologo filename.vbs

If your script uses WScript.Echo or simular subroutines, you’ll want to use cscript rather than wscript, otherwise I seem to recall that you get message boxes for each Echo subroutine call.

.vbs files many times contain viruses. Be careful!
