daruffin,

Is your question simply: How to Open a Shortcut?
Or more specifically:  How to Open a Shortcut using the Shell command?

Because you can open a shortcut quite easily by treating it as a Hyperlink
Try something like this:

Application.FollowHyperlink "C:\Documents and Settings\user\Desktop\NameOfYourShortCut.lnk"

(If you get a hyperlink warning, you can disable it for good by seeing this link: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/829072/en-us)
