Shortcut on a remote desktop

Last Modified: 2013-12-16
I have to remotely install a new application on every windows 95 workstations. The application setup works fine but I need to put an icon shortcut on the desktop.
I've found the line "RunDLL32 AppWiz.Cpl,NewLinkHere %1" in the registry but I don't know how it works. What is for %1
Could you give me an example.
(Copying the *.lnk from a workstation to another doesn't work because the UNC is used.)

Thanksfor help
