Launch a program from vbscript

Im trying to launch a program from vbscript but i cant get it to work

Information of deathbycaptcha:
To report an incorrectly solved CAPTCHA, run:
dbcclient.exe -l USERNAME -p PASSWORD -n CAPTCHA_ID

Function risc(ByVal captchaid)
Dim objShell
objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
objShell.ShellExecute("C:\dbcclient.exe -l hkhk -p testeste -n" + captchaid)
End Function

please help thanks

RE: Launch a program from vbscript

maybe you forgot only one space


objShell.ShellExecute("C:\dbcclient.exe -l hkhk -p testeste -n " + captchaid) 

RE: Launch a program from vbscript

added the white space but still get this error:
Conversion from string "C:\dbcclient.exe -l hkhk" to type 'Double' is not valid.

RE: Launch a program from vbscript

Something like this should get you closer:


Dim objShell
Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
objShell.ShellExecute "C:\dbcclient.exe", "-l hkhk -p testeste -n " & captchaid
