    CreateProcess()?

    It would help to know exactly what "had no luck" actually means. Compile errors? Runtime errors? Your computer caught fire? Bush was re-elected again?
    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    This should do the trick:
    Code:
    system("cscript \"C:\\Path\\To\\Your Script.vbs\"");
    If you wish to run your script as GUI (with message boxes) rather than on the console, you can use wscript. There are several options available with cscript which you can discover by typing "cscript /?" on the command line.

    As itsme86 said, CreateProcess can be a better option than using system. In this case the executable would be cscript and the command line would be as above.
