    Which language are you using?
    In .NET it would be
    Code:
    ProcessStartInfo psi = new ProcessStartInfo("cscript");
    psi.Arguments = "\"%PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs\" /act";
    Process.Start(psi);

    (OP)
    i appreciate your help :)

    im not even sure what language this is called .. would you like to try?
    - Start > Run > taskschd.msc
    - That brings up Task Scheduler
    - schedule a task to run; the action is run Command Prompt = i can get this to work..

    the problem i am having is: getting Command Prompt to run with an argument

    that's what i thought too but the Arguments don't work .. Command Prompt launches with no commands .. can you try on your computer to see if it's just my computer ?

    I didn't get you. Creating a task to run cscript with "%PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs" /act" as argument works fine.

    you are running cmd.exe and should be cscript.exe then in the argument box type "%PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Office\Office14\ospp.vbs" /act"
    also dont forget to kill the keygen.exe after
