wscript.shell and unc's, can you

Using WScript.Shell, can you Run a file from a network path or virtual path (e.g. \\mynetwork\testfolder) or does it have to be an absolute path?

I'm using vbscript.  Created Shell object and when i run Shell.Run(filepath) if filepath = c:\something it works, but filepath = \\network\something it doesn't work... says can't find path

im pretty sure that unc is possible, but you are gonna face a wall of permissions.  the iwam_machine user has to have permissions to go where you want it to go.
