Experts,

Can someone help me create a script that will create a URL shortcut file from a list of computers in a txt file.

So, for every server in the .txt file, create "C:\Folder\<servername>.URL" and pipe this text into that file:

[InternetShortcut]
URL=http://<servername>/

Thanks in advance,

A.

Try this; the URL files will be created in the same folder as the text file (specified in the variable "InputFile")
@ECHO OFF
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
set InputFile=D:\Temp\ServerList.txt
for %%a in ("%InputFile%") do (set Folder=%%~dpa)
for /f %%a in ('type "%InputFile%"') do (
	set ShortcutFile=%Folder%\%%a.URL
	echo Creating !ShortcutFile! ...
	 >"!ShortcutFile!" echo [InternetShortcut]
	>>"!ShortcutFile!" echo URL=http://%%a/
)
