//D (NTXP)
Turns on the debugger.
//E:engine (NTXP)

//H:host (NTXP)
Registers the default script host for running scripts. The default is Wscript.exe.
//I (NTXP)
Specifies interactive mode, which displays alerts, scripting errors, and input prompts. This is the default and the opposite of //B.
//Job:xxxx (NTXP)
Runs the job identified by xxxx in the script_name.
//Logo (NTXP)
Specifies that the Windows Script Host banner is displayed in the console window before the script runs. This is the default and the opposite of //Nologo.
//Nologo (NTXP)
Specifies that the Windows Script Host banner is not displayed before the script runs.
//S (NTXP)
