VBS Wake on LAN from txt file

I have got a txt file with all the mac address i would like to send the wake on lan packet to. How would i get a vb script to exec wol.exe mac address with the right formatting?

The txt file has the information in this format.

While the wol.exe needs the mac address without the ":". Example is;

Then the script should exec "wol.exe 000000000000" for each mac address. Also, its one mac address per line. I would like the mac address txt file left alone and the removing of the ":" done live, when the script runs. Not editing the mac address txt file at all.
