Thanks Ian and Klaus,

I got a nice icon now on OSX and I got it working.
I put this into the script:
launch  "/Users/william/Desktop/William.vcf" with

It took a while to get it going but I find out you have to write
"Address" in stead of "".

In the script I now ask where to put the .vcf file.
What if I am not the user of this litte stack. Do I have to use
Defaultfolder with this or are there other options?
