Hi

We have a windows 2012 application server in our network and have a shared drive called "G" and normally we install applications on this drive and this drive gets mapped for our users.

Now I have been given an application and when installing this application on this Windows 2012 server and it defaults to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Pearson\AdministratorDashboard
I wanted to change the default path to “G” drive and it doesn’t allow to change the path and says cannot change the path.

So installed this application on the default path.Now the shortcut for this program has be installed on the servers desktop. When I execute the shortcut the program opens successfully.
Only the exam officer needs access to this application .Is there a way to create this shortcut on windows 7 PC for  point to this server.

Any help will be great.
Thanks
