  • Windows 7? Is it prompting for UAC, if your supressing it, you might not see the UAC prompt.
  • Looks like a problem in the executable path in vbscript..

Clue: Your executable path has a space in it...

VBScab is right.. Put some Quotes "" "around your path".. Otherwise the path = C:\Program and not C:\Program Files\abcd\123.exe

  • Try something like

    pathStr = Chr(34) & "C:\Program Files\abcd\123.exe" & Chr(34)

    and run pathStr to have the quotation marks where they belong.
    I usually include those quotation marks by default since they don't disturbe even when they are not needed (in paths with no spaces).
