Hi there,

I need to create a batch file that will do the following.

I need to read the UNC of an LNK file.  If it contains "Elvis", replace the computer name portion of the UNC to an IP address.

LNK file name=Elvis.lnk
UNC Before=\\Server1\share\elvis
UNC After=\\192.168.10.10\share\elvis

Thanks for helping,
Rene

I use a 3rd party tool for this http://optimumx.com/downloads.html#Shortcut.

I don't know if there's a built-in Windows tool.

shortcut /F:"Elvis.lnk" /A:E /T:\\192.168.10.10\share\elvis

Open in new window


Do you need to know the existing value before doing the change?
