I'm trying to get a Macro to run to open an Access 2007 DB which is located on a shared drive S.  

I get this error message " There is no script engine for this file extension".mde"

This is the code:

[PCOMM SCRIPT HEADER]
LANGUAGE=VBSCRIPT
DESCRIPTION=
[PCOMM SCRIPT SOURCE]
OPTION EXPLICIT
autECLSession.SetConnectionByName(ThisSessionName)

REM This line calls the macro subroutine
subSub1_
sub subSub1_()

Dim wshShell
Set wshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
wshShell.Run "WScript.exe S:AcsData\Disco.mde", 1, False

end sub
