Replace Windows 7 Start Menu Shortcuts
Hello. I have been trying to use our KACE 1000 to create a script to change two start menu shortcuts that are corrupt. I've hit a dead end as I cannot find a way via KACE to make this work. I've created a batch file that if run as Administrator, it does work and replaces the short cuts. However, running the batch file in KACE both with the builtin batch file tool and a manual batch don't work. The command prompt on the client system just hangs. I did set the run as permission with our network administrator credentials.
Any suggestions would be really appreciated.
you should be able to create a script (run as system) to xcopy the files. Upload the links as dependencies and use xcopy to move them from the kace directory to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\whereever
launch a program
parameters $(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\*.lnk C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\whereever /q /y
