Hi Ankit,

Create a Link file which points to the exe of the other application, Make your shortcut point to the link file and include the linkfile in the same component in which the shortcut exists(Set the link file as key file) and advertise the shortcut.

IIRC there's no way to create an advertised shortcut with a file that's not in the app.

use properties to read/store the location of the EXE and parameters.
