Try use ShellExecute API?

Example:

Public 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

Public Function StartDoc(ByVal FileName As String, Optional CommandLine As String = "") As Long
    StartDoc = ShellExecute(0&, "Open", FileName, CommandLine, vbNullString, 1)
End Function

then use like:

StartDoc "c:\test.mst"

Let me know if it's not working, regards
