For this example I added a Test Button to a screen.

Right Click and select  Properties



In Object Properties for the button under the OnDown tab:



You can use EXEC which a built in scripting function to launch the utility from command line input or from a batch file. 


In order for it to work in the VB script editor it must be prefaced with a ($)  

The first example uses the EXEC function by passing command line Input

The second example uses the EXEC function to execute a batch file. (update the highlightedted path to reflect the path to the batch file in your environment.)


'Command Line Input:
$Exec("""" & $GetProductPath() & "Bin\LogWinExt.exe"" /dsip:localhost /dsport:1234""")

'Batch File:
$Exec("CMD /C call C:\Users\dNichi\Desktop\logwin.cmd",0,0,"execHandle")

Batch File Contents:

start /b /d "c:\Program Files (x86)\AVEVA\AVEVA Edge 2020\Bin\" LogWinExt.exe /DSIP: /DSPORT:1234
