Working with the Desktop Shortcut Wizard, and so far have the shortcut I want, pushing out no problem. However I want the shortcut to be placed in:

C:\Users\Public\Desktop

Right now it pushes the shortcut to whatever user is signed into the system.

I would rather have it stored in the location above, as the shortcut in question is temporary..and needs to be deleted at some point (which I will also script). We cannot rely on staff to do this, which may leave them clicking on a short cut that is no longer valid.

Any help would be great..hopefully it is something simple.

Where does your script copy it to now? Is it relying on a relative location? I see no reason why it couldn't put it there. Do you have details on your script?

Currently the shortcut goes to my user profile (testing with my account) - so C:\Users\<username>\Desktop.

Here is the programming in the script:

Launch “$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\ShortcutCreator.exe” with params “ -location=”Users\Public\Desktop“ -name=”Shortcut Name“ -target=”C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe“ -startin=”“”.

The item in Bold/Italics/Underlined, is where I attempted to make the change. Originally just had "-location="Desktop".

What if you put -location="c:\users\public\deskop" ?

Darn, now you can tell how much i use that exe. Well, it's a script so you can add a task to copy it from the current user's folder to the all user's folder? Or create your own shortcut copy script that has it zipped or something.

Guess I will end up using a batch file, via scripting. I can create/transfer the shortcut to where I want using that method. Strange though...I would have thought the built in tool would have that flexibility. Maybe I am putting the parameters in wrong....but each variation I put in...did not make a difference...almost like the -location switch does nothing at all.
