I want to create a simple msi with only a shortcut. This shortcut is S:\, but when the gpo installs the msi, there's an error (in the log) that says S: is an invalid drive... Normal since the login script hasn't executed itself, no user is logged.

Is there a way to desactivate the verification or any other way that would let me create a shortcut to S: ? I tried to delete all entry with orca in the validation table, but it still doesn't work. I use WinInstall LE to create my msis,

Create the shortcut as you want it (on the client) and then add the shortcut file (.lnk) to the package (File table).

I have not used WInstall LE before but perhaps the logic would be.

Create a URL file which points to the S:\ drive. Place this URL in ProgramFiles\AppName

Create a shortcut with following attributes:-

Shortcut Name : As you wish
Target Dir : ProgramFiles\AppName\filename.URL
Icon : As you wish

This way you can also advertise your shortcut.
