I get the following error message when trying the below code:
Microsoft VBScript compilation error:  Expected ')'

My quoting off?

dim objShell, boolCode
set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
boolCode = objShell.Run("C:\Program Files\A\Load.exe" /project:Alt /s "Tween" /r /w /e)

will it work for you like this:


dim objShell, boolCode
set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
boolCode = objShell.Run ("C:\Program Files\A\Load.exe /project:Alt /s Tween /r /w /e")

Did the following to get the quoting correct.

dim scriptsetName
scriptsetName = GetXMLText("Defaults\ScriptName")
iLoaderProcess = """" & objFSO.BuildPath(RegRead6432("HKLM\Software\Alt\Path") , "\ETL\iLoaderClient\Load.exe") & """ " & _
"/r         " & _
"/s:""" & scriptsetName & _
"/Project:" & altProjectNm & " " & _
"/Server:localhost"
                                msgbox iLoaderProcess
                boolCode = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell").run ( iLoaderProcess , 1 , true)
