Need some help with Visual Basic

So all I need to know is how to call an external program via VB. I am using the code below but it says file not found. The file is there without a doubt. I am thinking I am writing the right path to the file. I am just using the same path format that the registry uses. Thanks

Code:
Shell("\Program Files\Opera Mobile\OperaL.exe")

Re: Need some help with Visual Basic

if you're trying to call this from the C:\ drive, you need to put (C:\Program Files\Opera Mobile\OperaL.exe")

alternatively you can
Code:
Dim OperaPath, WSHShell
Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
OperaPath = "C:\Progam Files\Opera Mobile\"
WSHShell(OperaPath & "OperaL.exe")
still would like to see more of your code though

My bad. This is for a pocket pc app. I probably should have mentioned that in my original post

Code:
Run("Program Files\Opera Mobile\OperaL.exe")
or
Code:
Shell("Program Files\Opera Mobile\OperaL.exe")
is this vbscript that you're trying to run or mort script?
