What do you mean by "asking for that drive?"

Could you not create the mapping in script, using NET USE x: \\SERVER\SHARE or, better, in VBS using the MapNetworkDrive method of the WScript.Network object.

Ah...OK.

The normal work-around for that is to use a property for the Working Directory entry and assign the complete path to the property's value.

Let's assume the Working Directory you want to set is L:\Apps\ThisApp

- Create a property called, say SHORTCUT_WORKING_DIR
- Assign it the value L:\Apps\ThisApp
- Go to the Shortcut table
- Locate the row containing the shortcut you want to change
- In that row's WorkDir column, enter [SHORTCUT_WORKING_DIR], remembering to include the surrounding square brackets
- Compile
