Hello all,

I'm having some trouble using the "configure.vbs" script on Windows XP
SP3. I invoke it like so:

c:\VirtualBox> cscript configure.vbs

and the output is:

Microsoft (R) Windows Script Host Version 5.7
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Shell inheritance test: OK
Source path: OK

Checking for Windows Platform SDK (recent)...
C:\VirtualBox\configure.vbs(140, 4) Microsoft VBScript runtime error:
Type mismatch: 'LBound'

I thought to myself, "OK, perhaps LBound is returning the wrong type,"
so I went into configure.vbs and changed line 140 like so:

for i = CInt(LBound(arrStrings)) to CInt(UBound(arrStrings))

and got the same result upon reinvocation. Any help would be greatly
