As long as it would be COM comnpatible, you can't but if you only need to open the file and nothing more you could use Shellexecute api.

Private Declare Function ShellExecute Lib "shell32.dll" Alias "ShellExecuteA" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal lpOperation As String, ByVal lpFile As String, ByVal lpParameters As String, ByVal lpDirectory As String, ByVal nShowCmd As Long) As Long


shellexecute 0, "open","D:\test.doc",vbnullstring,,vbnullstring,vbnormalfocus
