I have an application which has some strange shortcuts.

The capture recorded the shortcut paths as Install\{XXXX-XXXX...}\NewShortcutXX.exe etc.

I want to manually put in the shortcuts however after running a re-install using the original media on clicking properties on the shortcuts I found all of the Target paths greyed out?

Any ideas where can I find the target file?

Hi,

Delete the shortcut that was made, and recreate it by repoint it to the exe file. "C:\Program Files\......"

What is the software you are installing ?

That's exactly the problem - I don't know the .exe to point to?

Let me get this straight, you have snapped the sottware. So the software is installed on the your machine.

You have the WSI created, and you are using Wise Installer. If that is the case, you should be able to goto the Files section in Installer and it should show you all the files installed and where they are installed to.

You might need to use the drop down menu to see it the files are in the Complete section or the Feature sections.

There you should be able to see where the EXE is.

Go to the shortcuts tab in the GUI. Be sure to look at all features.

It should list all shortcuts and the exe's they point to, even if the target field is greyed out after install.

Afraid not - they were incorrectly captured as well, any other ideas?

Well, worst case, run filemon to see what exe is executed when you launch the shortcut.

Good idea!

Or bring up Task Manager and look in the process tab and see what runs when you run the software.

f.y.i, the reasons the shortcuts where greyed out is because they where advertised
