In the tutorial, opening application such as notepad was easy. It says I can use the same format to open any other application, but when I try to open IE or my other file, it doesn't want to work.

If the app is not in the path environment ten you have to specify the full path to the file

$Path = @ProgramFilesir\MyApp\myapp.exe"
RunWait($Path)
ShellExecute($Path)
