I am working to copy a shortcut link to a folder on the C:/ drive. I have got it to work using Kace but not the way we want.

I have zipped up the shortcut link uploaded it as a dependency and unzipped it using scripting but that adds and extra folder to the path, we just want the link in the folder specified folder.

I have also tried copying the file to the folder, however when I upload the link to the dependencies section it makes it into an application file not a shortcut file.

Is there any way to perfect this?

Thank you.

Here is how I setup icons..

.zip the shortcut link(s)


Add that as a dependencies.

Then tell the script to unzip to the folder you want the icon to appear:


In this one it is going to the Public Desktop folder - so it appears no matter which account is signed in.

The above would also work if I had more than one shortcut file in the .zip. It would just unzip them all to C:\Users\Public\Desktop.

The SMA auto unzips the attached zip file to the working directory.
