Hi Experts,

I hope someone can help with what is likely to be a simple query...  I am looking for a vbscript to call an exe file and then pass an xml file...  The following works very well from the command line...

C:\Program Files\AI\app.exe /config "C:\Program Files\AI\initial config.xml"

Thanks for your help!
