How to use a desktop short cut Target path to include a .ini file

Hello Experts,

I am creating a bat file to push out to customers. This file will create two icons on their desktop. One will take them to a Test environment and the other a Production environment. The Test and Production executable will use different .ini files when executed. What is the correct syntax for this?

I tried:     exe /f c:\InformationDesignTool.ini           without luck.
Error: "The informationDesignTool executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library"
OS: is Windows 7

I did locate information on SAP's site that this is due to a long file path name. I changed it to c:\  and still received the error.

On the command prompt window do:

dir /x c:\InformationDesignTool.ini

The /x flag will surface the 8.3 naming format of your long file name.

Use that short name in the script.

You may also try wrapping it im quotes. E.g

/exe /f "c:\InformationDesignTool.ini"
