Question Running exe on ASP

I've manage to make this code work:

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
      objShell.Exec "C:\WINDOWS\system32\winmine.exe"
Set objShell = Nothing
But when I tried adding parameters, I always fail..
dim arr(3)
arr(0) = "inc"
arr(1) = "contacts"
arr(2) = "inc_ChineseTranslation"
arr(3) = "inc_ChineseTranslation2"
dim f
f = Join(arr,"|")
dim zip
zip = "desktop"

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
		objshell.Exec("C:\Program Files\XStandard\Bin\ConsoleApplication2.exe """&f&""" """& zip &""" ""C:\Documents and Settings\joshua\Desktop""")
Set objshell = Nothing
Can someone tell me what am I doing wrong?..
Thank you in Advance!!

Aww men..

Why can't I make this work?..

objShell.Run (cmd,0,True)

but this one works..

objShell.Run (cmd)

This line of code is inside a Sub, when I browse the asp page, it says there's an error in the page.

Type mismatch 'RunMe'

RunMe is the name of the Sub.

So what exactly am I doing wrong?...

Thank you in Advance!!
