Can't script

In FrameMaker  (Help -> About Framemaker says I'm running 13.0.1), when I click File -> Script -> New Script, nothing happens.  When I click File -> Script -> Run and select a simple script I created from the tutorial, nothing happens.  What could be wrong?  Is my install of FM not authorized to run scripts - how would I verify that's the case so I can go to my company and tell them what I need them to order?  Thanks!

It should have been installed with your FrameMaker installation. Check with IT. Maybe they did a custom install and left it out.

Click the Windows Start button and type ExtendScript and see if the ExtendScript Toolkit shows up. That is the application necessary to run the scripts.

Thanks.  It doesn't show up.  Does that mean I need to have it ordered?

Thanks again, that's just what I needed - a verification that it's not an extended feature of Framemaker needed to be ordered special in addition to FrameMaker and that it probably came with my license, but simply didn't get installed.
