Since the application you are trying to launch isn't running, it is tough
to send it an AppleEvent.  What you need to do is send the Finder an Open
Selection event or some such non-standard event.  Details are in the
AppleEvent Registery which can be found on the system 7 CD or dev CD s(?). 
If you can't find any of these, I'll try to dig up the info for you.
