K2000 - Scripted OS: What is the best method to add desktop shortcuts?
Windows only (v7Sp1 only at this time)
This question has been asked before. I'm checking if there are new options I haven't found yet. I'm testing with Shortcut.exe right now, but haven't found a reliable method yet.
I'd like use a post install task to create shortcut icons on the desktop that link to URL's to download Flash, Shockwave, etc. We don't want to deploy these apps as PostInstall tasks because they update so frequently and we had to disable our K1000's patching of these items due to other issues.
Adobe Flash for IE would point to: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/download/?installer=Flash_Player_11_for_Internet_Explorer&os=Windows 7&browser_type=MSIE&browser_dist=OEM
If creating the shortcuts is more trouble than it's worth, I'd be ok with creating a document (word or HTML etc) on the All Users desktop that has links to each of the downloads. I'm not sure how I would get that done with the K2000.
