I have a shortcut file (.url) on a server and I want to deploy it to all users. I know this can be done in a script format but I don't know how to go about that.

Well I'm a lot closer then I thought:

xcopy "\\server\shared\Create a Ticket.url" "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Desktop\" /D /C /R /Y

I keep getting an the error:

Script: C:\Users\btny\Desktop\Script.vbs
Line: 1
Char: 56
Error: Expected end of statement
Code: 800A0401
Source: Microsoft VBScript compilation error

I am using Windows 7 64-bit although I don't think that makes a difference.

Save the Xcopy script as .bat instead of .VBS 
add this line on top
