Sorry meant to say I did this below but had to change the hd drive to D:\ and this worked a dream.... Thank you thank you thank you....
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("D:\Program Files\Launch Manager\WisWBSet.exe")
do while WshShell.AppActivate("Wireless Status Option")=False
The answer above was because I couldn't get my fn + f1 button to work in windows 7 on my amilo LI2727... Now working a dream...
Just have to try in ubuntu now...
