I thought it's the problem of IE safety configure. But I can find how to config IE to make it work.

function Run() {
  try   {
    var objShell = new ActiveXObject("wscript.shell");
    objShell.Run("calc");
  } catch(e) {

  }
}

Answer

It may be necessary to make a change to the IE settings:

For example, for the Local intranet zone, you typically need to change a custom setting to "Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe for scripting."

I couldn't get the sample above to run without making the change.
