Could have provided less information?

Is it an advertised shortcut? Is it deployed in .URL form? Does it point directly at 'C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe'?

It is actually deployed as a URL form

You mean, as a .URL file (the equivalent of a .LNK file)?

this is what i did. I right click on my desktop & created a shortcut & in the path i put down http://mysite.com & then i named it ABC. This gave me a shortcut of my desktop & then i went to the properties & change the icon to my desired icon.

The shortcut would have created in Usersprofile. Have you moved it to Allusers profile? If not, you can try.

What I have observed is the file from which you are getting the icon for the shortcut should be accessed atleast once in user mode. If you could find the registry ket where it stores the icon file for user then i think you can manage it. I have tried it but couldn't find the registry key.

This is like pulling teeth....

The people who participate in this forum are generally quite clever but, as far as I'm aware, the majority do not possess psychic powers.

Then you did...what after that? How are you deploying the shortcut? Is it even in an MSI or have you just copied the shortcut to another user's profile? Information, information, information...Jeez...

Open your .URL in notepad. What is the Icon path? (IconFile=), Does it exist and is accessible to the users on your deployed workstations?

I am deploying those shortcuts through MSI. So this is how i accomplish this.

Instead of copying the shortcuts to the predefined folders in my MSI as a file, i actually created a program directory and copied my shortcut in there. Then i created those shortcuts in my programs menu folder & targeted to my INSTALLDIR.
