Minimize all windows, launching menu

Hi, thanks for reading.

Is there a way to minimize all windows automatically when launching an application?

I tried to call a .vbs file with the content above:
Set shell = wscript.CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Shell.MinimizeAll

But doing this, application is minimized too.

Apparently, you have to enumerate windows yourself and process (= minimize) all but your own.
