This is the MSFT scripting center / repository.   Hundreds of scripts are here, including ones that run programs on local & remote machines.  You can probably find what you need already written here.

And this one (probably better for you)

Why a VBScript?

To run a program from a shared network drive, use

\\SERVER\SHARE\Path\Program.exe

Either as target of a shortcut or in a small batch script (*.cmd)
