How do I script to redirect path for shortcuts in Start Menu?

Last Modified: 2013-11-10
Hi, I need to relink some apps since I am changing out the lab server.

I have some shortcuts for a few programs.

1) Can some one give me an example script to modify to change the target path for this "Start Menu" "shortcut for "All Users"?
(Target: \\ServerName\ExamView40\evplay.exe)

2) Also, I have a "Desktop" shortcut for a folder on the server.  Is there a simple script I can use to redirect this shortcut for "All Users" to the new lab server?
(Target: \\ServerName\studentfiles)

3) Lastly, what about copying updated files to replace the current ones with a script?

Any help or advice or direction is much appreciated.

Thanks for your time.
