So, I have an interesting problem here and don't see it in Google.

We currently run Office 2003 SP3 and want to push out Office 2007 with SCCM. Created the MSP with setup /admin and all that good stuff. Works fine. Later on, I realize we have two uniquely named shortcuts for Access databases and that the path for these will be changing. A sample path in one of the shortcuts looks like this:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\MSACCESS.EXE" "C:\EngDb_FE\EngDb_FE.mde" /WRKGRP "G:\EngDb_BE\EngDb03_Security.mdw"

During the Office 2007 setup, it removes the standard Office shortcuts AND these two other icons that have the target msaccess.exe in the command path! This is really bad. I need Office 2007 to keep its paws off these two shortcuts and can't understand why it would remove them when they aren't apart of the standard Office 2003 suite. I looked in the "Configure Shortcuts" section of the MSP and can find nothing about it removing shortcuts outside of the Office suite.

I can handle changing the shortcuts using batch scripts, but I need them to stay put so I can check for the existence of them and then copy them over if needed. Not every PC will have these two icons. If I go into the shortcuts and change the path to Office 12, it leaves the icons alone!
