The first is a simple VBScript to launch an application. What you need for this is the window title of Dreamweaver when it first launches. The code is as follows:
set oshl = createobject("Wscript.Shell")
oshl.run "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS4\Dreamweaver.exe", 10, false
'search for name of window to activate
retval = oshl.AppActivate("**DREAMWEAVER WINDOW TITLE GOES HERE**")
if retval then exit do
count = count + 1
loop until count = 50 'loop for 5 seconds - change this if you need
Copy & paste that into Notepad, replace
**DREAMWEAVER WINDOW TITLE GOES HERE** with the window title of Dreamweaver, save it as "launchDreamweaver.vbs", and launch that instead of the Dreamweaver executable.

If that doesn't work, if you're a tad ambitious, you can write a program and invoke the BringWindowToTop function in user32.dll (see this MSDN article for method details). Then you could write a simple C#/C++/VB program to launch the program, and then set the Z-order.
I know that this may not be the most preferred method, but I don't believe you can invoke
user32.dll using VBScript...
