We have a situation where we are only a client (no admin privileges) and want to run the Microsoft System Center client from a command prompt.  We used to be able to make a shortcut to it from the Start Menu. We can no longer do it since the new version of Configuration Manager was installed, Version 5.00.8355.1306.
It there a way to run the "Software Center" from a command line or someone get a shortcut to the desktop?

Not that I'm aware of, but Microsoft is quickly moving away from the software center control panel anyways. It uses (last I checked) Silverlight, so doesn't run on the breadth of OSes or devices that SCCM now covers.  You should be able to call a browser from the command line and most browsers have a way to pass a web address. Just call the browser with the web address for the software center on the server. That's the new preferred method and, barring a change of course, will be more sustainable longer term as older technologies get deprecated.
