I would like to virtualise some www URL's so i can place shortcuts on the userdesktop based on their membership of a group.

I do this by virtualising the shortcut

c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplorer.exe www.URLILIKE.nl

THis works perfectly. But if i'm already running internet Explorer i cannot open other shortcuts.
Is there a way to virtualise as many URL as i like and use them togehter at the same time?

At this point i can use just one shortcut at a time wich make them unusable.

I am not sure if I have understand your query fully. It seems you are creating shortCut using
c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplorer.exe www.URLILIKE.nl

So that user will be able to access the website "www.URLILIKE.nl" by using the shortCut.

Has this method ever worked for you? Command does not seems to be correct :
It should be :
c:\program files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe www.URLILIKE.nl 
See the Iexplorer and iexplore

Better you can make shortcuts with path like "" http://www..URLILIKE.nl "" and save it with some name you like.

I hope it will help you.

PCSMITPRA,

Thank you for your comment.
It not possible to virtualise a shortcut with just an URL in it. you can only virtualis a shortcut to an application like an .exe or .cmd or something like that.

I would like to make an app-v package with just one shorcut in that package.

I've got multiple applications running with app-v. but this is not an application. its just a shortcut.

I recommend not to use this method for publishing shortcuts because the URL is openend in a bubble. So PDF files, Flash, Active-X etc. will not work. You can use Group Policy preferences for that.

If you do want to use it, maybe c:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe -new "http://www.site.com" works.
