I think if you try:
launch "/Applications/Google Earth 18.104.22.16830.app"
that will work. OS X deals with folder paths differently to previous
Mac systems and you don;t need to specify the hard disk at the start
of the path.
To confirm the file path, copy & paste this into the message box and
see what you get:
answer file "Select Google Earth app"; put it
