Changing the target line in a shortcut using vb.net

I currently use a client/server database that is being migrated to a new server.  This will mean that the command line to the server in the shortcut target will change to the new server name/location.  

I need to develop an application that will locate the specific shortcut and amend the target line with the new server details so this can be used in other departments.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am pretty sure the code is VB6, but maybe you'll be able to use the same or similar classes to accomplish your task?

I don't know if it will, but I hope that helps.
