 problems when calling wsh - script from executable

Hi all out there!

I want to print a word document on various printers. Therefore I have
written a vbs script containing (among others) the lines below. They
work very well when the script is called from the windows command
line, like cscript -nologo <path>\myscript.vbs <doc name> <printer

However if I try to execute the same command line using the c++
command "system" the winword process does not terminate any more. Then
deleting the line ".ActivePrinter = WScript.Arguments(1)" from the
script and hence printing the document always on the default printer I
suddenly get a positive result also with the c++ call.

So why can't I change the ActivePrinter when calling the script from

Please help me!!!!!


With objWD
    ' tell word to remain invisible
    .Visible = False
    Err = 0
    ' open the file with the given name
    .Documents.Open docFileName
    If Err <> 0 Then
       WScript.Quit 3
    End If
    Err = 0
    .ActivePrinter = WScript.Arguments(1)
    If Err <> 0 Then
       WScript.Quit 4
    End If
    Err = 0
    .Options.PrintBackground = False
    If Err <> 0 Then
       WScript.Quit 5
    End If
End With
