I want to write a batch file to replace some files on network pc's

first it needs to detect if the following directory exists "C:\1stDir32\" and if it does then replace the file called AOTB.lnk on the desktop and in the start menu with - "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk"

I Also need to take into accoun t weather the PC is XP or Windows7

simple cmd version you could change the stat menu target path, I don't know in wich programs subfolder your shortcut is :

cd /D c:\1stDri32
IF %errorlevel%==1 goto fin

xcopy "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk" "%userprofile%\desktop\AOTB.lnk" /Y
xcopy "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk" "%userprofile%\start menu\programs\AOTB.lnk" /Y

:fin

Havent tested it, but this script should do the job (on both XP & Win7)
Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objFSO = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
If (objFSO.FolderExists("C:\1stDir32\")) Then
  objFSO.CopyFile "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk", objShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop"), True 
  objFSO.CopyFile "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk", objShell.SpecialFolders("StartMenu"), True 
End If

And also replace in the all user desktop & all user startmenu
Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objFSO = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
If (objFSO.FolderExists("C:\1stDir32\")) Then
  objFSO.CopyFile "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk", objShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop"), True 
  objFSO.CopyFile "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk", objShell.SpecialFolders("StartMenu"), True 
  objFSO.CopyFile "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk", objShell.SpecialFolders("AllUserDesktop"), True 
  objFSO.CopyFile "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk", objShell.SpecialFolders("AllUserStartMenu"), True

The cmd version should check the windows version. For windows 7 the Startmenu is in  "%userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu"

I have gone with the CMD version as I will just be able to add it to our existing logon script

I have tried runnig it manually but i am getting

does %userprofile%\desktop\AOTB.lnk specify a filename or the directory? F=filename D=directory

it is not necessary to specify the destination file name :

cd /D c:\1stDri32
IF %errorlevel%==1 goto fin

xcopy "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk" "%userprofile%\desktop\" /Y
xcopy "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk" "%userprofile%\start menu\programs\" /Y
xcopy "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk" "%userprofile%\start menu\programs\startup\" /Y

xcopy "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk" "%allusersprofile%\start menu\programs\" /Y
xcopy "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk" "%allusersprofile%\desktop\" /Y
xcopy "\\server\LHS Install Set\VirtualCabinetSelector\AOTB.lnk" "%allusersprofile%\start menu\programs\startup\" /Y
