Can you see if you turned ON the module scripscan?
If you have disabled in the VSE8.8 version ScripScan so try it switch to on and all the mistakes "The memory could not be read" should disappear. (ePO > Policy > VSE8.8 > On-access General Policies > Edit Settings > ScriptScan > select box "Enable scanning of scripts")
Have fun ;-)
Thanks for the reply. I have already disabled Script scanning, it was enabled before and we were getting WSCRIPT.exe errors at startup. Turning it off prevented this but not the errors detailed above. I saw in another post that other people were having trouble with the script scanning feature and had disabled it. I'm not terribly impressed by 8.8 so far I have to be honest. Seems like a step back from 8.7.
