Internet Shortcut placed on all users desktop

I would like a simple batch file that will place an internet shortcut (www.mysite.com) with the icon file for the site as the icon to the all users desktop.

Is there simple code I could use to accomplish this?

Thanks!

use the location

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop

so it will be visible by all users... instead of looping all users...

here is a sample code that you can make use of it
sub DesktopShortCuts()
  Dim FSO, strDesktopPath, strMyAppPath, objShortcutUrl
  
  Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
  Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

  strDesktopPath = WshShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop")
  strMyAppPath = WshShell.SpecialFolders("MyDocuments")

  Set objShortcutUrl = WshShell.CreateShortcut(strDesktopPath & "\Octopus-HR.lnk")

  'FSO.CopyFile "\\server\netlogon\program\program.ico", strMyAppPath & "\program.ico"
  FSO.CopyFile "D:\Library\img\ico\craxddrt_16837.ico", strMyAppPath & "\program.ico"

  objShortcutUrl.TargetPath = "https://www.program-site.com/portal/index.html"
  objShortcutUrl.IconLocation = strMyAppPath & "\program.ico"
  objShortcutUrl.Save
End Sub

DesktopShortCuts()

Open in new window

help on SpecialFolders

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/0ea7b5xe(v=vs.85).aspx

you can use

strMyAppPath = WshShell.SpecialFolders("AllUsersDesktop")
