    You didn't mention OS, so I'm not 100% certain this will work, but give it a try:
    Dim objShell : Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
    strComputer = InputBox("Enter the computer name to offer remote assistance:")
    objShell.Run "msra.exe /offerra " & strComputer

    Open in new window
