When you need your script to launch another application, use the Run method:
WshShell.Run strCommand, [intWindowStyle], [bWaitOnReturn]

WshShellThe WshShell object.
strCommandThe name of the file that starts the application. Unless the file is in the Windows folder, you should include the drive and folder to make sure that the script can find the file.
intWindowStyleA constant or number that specifies how the application window will appear:
 intWindowStyleWindow Appearance
 0Hidden
 1Normal size with focus
 2Minimized with focus (this is the default)
 3Maximized with focus
 4Normal without focus
 6Minimized without focus
bWaitOnReturnA logical value that determines whether the application runs asynchronously. If this value is True, the script halts execution until the user exits the launched application; if this value is False, the script continues running after it has launched the application.

Here’s an example:

Set objWshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
objWshShell.Run "Control.exe Inetcpl.cpl", 1, True

This Run method launches Control Panel’s Internet Properties dialog box.
