Create shortcut

Posted: 10-17-2008, 12:21 PM
Hi,

I am not able to create a shortcut to a application on a shared network
folder.
On a XP machine it is no problem, but it is not possible on a vista machine.
The server is windows 2008 in a workgroup.
I think this is a security problem and hope somebody has a solution.

Kind regards

Freddy

Freddy:

Try creating the shortcut on the server in the same folder as the
program resides first. Then copy and paste the shortcut to the Vista
machine. See if that works. You might have to take ownership of the
shortcut when you get it to the Vista machine, but hopefully the
copy/paste will do that for you.

One note: make sure you can run the program from Vista by dbl-clicking
on the program in the shared folder first. If you can't do that, we
have to fix something different.
