Shortcut Points to Computer Where Created rather than to C:\ When Copied
Posted on 2003-10-30
I created a shortcut file (.lnk) on my PC. I copied it from my PC to a network drive. I then have a batch file that installs the shortcut - to be used for system installation by other users on the network.
The problem: Although I created the shortcut on my PC as pointing to C:\MyApp\MyApp.exe, when it is installed on a Windows XP machine it then points to \\MyPC\C$\MyApp\MyApp.exe. I want it to point to C:\MyApp\MyApp.exe - I don't want them retrieving the EXE from my machine across the network.
How do I create and install a shortcut that points to the local machine in XP from a BAT file.
