Can't run .vbs with Windows Task Scheduler - Open With...

Issue

Cannot run a simple .vbs script using Windows Task Scheduler. The script runs just fine if launched manually. However, if it's run from a scheduled task as a currently logged on user, Open With dialogue opens. If it's run from a scheduled task under a different user account, nothing happens and task stays in Running state indefinitely.
