In my package, I want to create a shortcut on the desktop that points to an .exe file on the network. How can I accomplish this. I tried using the shortcut option Wise Package Studio, Installer Editor but It only lets me create local ones.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

I have one suggestion for this problem.
Create a Link file ".lnk" pointing to that exe over the network and then add the link file to wise application as file to Desktop folder.

to create a link file pointing to some network location can be done using the script :-

Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set oFileSys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
sPath = "c:\Documents and Settings\All users\Desktop"
Set objShortcutLnk = WshShell.CreateShortcut(sPath & "\ShortCutName.lnk")
objShortcutLnk.TargetPath ="X:\Server\test.exe"
objShortcutLnk.Arguments = "-Argument"
objShortcutLnk.WorkingDirectory = "X:\Server\"

hope this helps
