Hi
I have a shortcut called “science molecules” located on a network share called “SHOTRCUTS”
Please post me batch file syntax to copy the “science molecules” shortcut from the share to the following location in windows 7. (The shortcut must be copied within the science folder)
C$\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Science

I will copy this batch file to a startup script in a GPO (Computer configuration-policies- windows settings-Scripts-startup)

Or please suggest me if there is a better way of doing this.

Thanks

Standard way is using a group policy preference file item. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc772536.aspx describes it.
