You have to load your Actions or Actionsets within Photoshop first! You can't load or invoke Actions as you've tried it. "App.load (File (..." refers to load images.

   Private Sub PhotoshopDoAction(ByVal action As String, ByVal actionSet As String)
        Dim PS As Photoshop.Application

        PS = New Photoshop.Application
        If PS.Application.Documents.Count > 0 Then
            PS.DoAction(action, actionSet)

        End If

    End Sub
