i have shortcuts that have working directories on network shares, i use a wise script to get the values from an ini file (all client standards) and then place them in public properties, i have the public properties set as the working directories of the shortcuts in the shortcut table, when i install, the wrk dirs are blank?? is this a bug in wise, the values are read correctly and set correct in the log file so i am stumped,
any help would be greatful?

When is your "Wisescript" action that reads your inifile scheduled?

Are you including square brackets ("[]") in the "WkDir" column of your "Shortcut" table? You don't need any.

Try using another public property for testing purposes, and specify a value on the command line. If that works, then try to populate it using your custom action.

1. Open the Setup Editor
2. Right click on Properties | New | Property
