I wonder if Paul's problem is not whether the .VBS extension is
properly associated with Wscript or Cscript, but rather whether --
improbable as it seems -- the file association between .VBS and the
VBScript engine was lost. That's what the error message says,
anyway: "There is no script engine for file extension `.VBS'."

What happens if the second command is changed to:

cscript //E:vbscript CLIP.VBS

Now does Alt-spacebar + E + P paste "This is a test" at the cursor
location? If it does, that would be suggestive.
