Creating GUIDs with Javascript Windows scripting host


I need to do some scripting from time to time, and I usually use Javascript to do everything. I needed to generate GUIDs for some CRM data that I wanted to create programmatically. I found this article from the Microsoft Scripting Guy.

He gave the example in VBScript, so here is the equivalent in JScript:

function guidGen() {
    var typeLib = new ActiveXObject( "Scriptlet.TypeLib" );
    return typeLib.Guid;
