vba DOS syntax image convert

When in DOS I can:
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\TotalImageConverter\

Then I type:
ImageConverter.exe Temp2\myfile.jpeg C:\Temp2\myfile.png and my file is converted to a png using the ImageConverter software

I tried Access: Shell (cmd.exe & "C:\Program Files (x86)\TotalImageConverter\ImageConverter.exe C:\Temp2\myfile.jpeg C:\Temp2\myfile.png")
I get error 424 "Object Required"

Does anyone know how to make this work?

Thanks very much.

The finished code uses a parameter '-fo' to overwrite the converted file if existing: -
Dim Retval As Variant
Dim strPath As String
'Convert jpeg to bmp
strPath = "C:\Program Files (x86)\TotalImageConverter\ImageConverter.exe" & " C:\Temp2\" & Dnote & ".jpeg" & " C:\Temp2\" & Dnote & ".png" & " -fo"
Retval = Shell(strPath)
