Does this work?

Run "\\copitrak\copitrakdesktop\CopitrakDesktop10.exe \\copitrak\copitrakdesktop /RELOAD"

Sub Run(ByVal sFile)
Dim shell
    Set shell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    shell.Run Chr(34) & sFile & Chr(34), 1, false
    Set shell = Nothing
End Sub

The Sub portion can go at the bottom of your script. That is a sub routine that is called by the Run command. The line that starts with Run would go at the point in your script where you'd like to actually execute the exe file.

Hi, I think the extra quotes added by the Sub will cause that to fail.  You should get away with adding this:

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Run "cmd /c \\copitrak\copitrakdesktop\CopitrakDesktop10.exe \\copitrak\copitrakdesktop /RELOAD", 0, True

above this:
