      I tried both examples, and they worked for me.



      1. Copied and pasted code into two files, FixCodeIndention.js and FixCodeSpacing.js in the folder C:\Temp



      2. Created two new user tools (programs) with appropriate Menu text and the commands



      cscript //NoLogo "c:\temp\FixCodeIndention.js"



      cscript //NoLogo "c:\temp\FixCodeSpacing.js"



      Argument and Initial directory are empty, Action is Run as Text Filter (Replace), and Save is None

I didn't change the JavaScript extension into anything else. Was I supposed to? The "Select File" window you use to find the Command file for User Tools seems to want to find executable files...
