Hi, @rrrppp, welcome to the forum. Are you doing any error checking in the VBS, as I don't see it spelled out here? How do you know you're successfully creating the two objects?

I already check using IsObject and it creates object successfully.

You could do it all in VBScript using SendKeys

I doubt it would work differently, I believe they're using the same mechanism to send the keys.

I tried both Autoit and Sendkeys but none of them are working. Do you have any other way to send keystrokes ?

It's just small script to open Media Express and press CTRL+1 key. I don't what is UAC and how to check that . Sorry ,I am new to this world.

Do you get a prompt when running MediaExpress.exe to allow running it?  

ps: Google is your friend when you don;t understand things yet. ;)

Try putting in a little longer sleep before sending the keystroke, to ensure the program really has fully started and is ready to receive keystrokes.
