Scripting Question

Trying to add a URL shortcut using the K2000

11/09/2015 1068 views

I have made a golden image WIM and was told if I could add our ADP.url shortcut to the image for deployment.  I was trying not to have to re-create a new golden image just to add a shortcut to all users public folder. Plus thought it would be good to learn as this might happen again be nice to add to post install if possible.

get the short cut to work and then zip that link up with a xcopy batch file.   Create an app task and attach that and call the bat file for the command.

  • Recommend this method, however you could also mount the WIM and add the file to your image directly.
  • This seems very easy but for some reason I keep getting a task error with the K2000. I have only been working with the k2000 for two weeks so thanks for your help. I have a URL created and saved to my desktop. I zipped this URL and added it as a app to the k2000. The URL is just called ADP.url and the zip is ADP.zip. Thinking my parameter is a little off and that's why I'm getting this error. I need this to go to all users on the computer so the public desktop. Do I need to add a bat script as well to make this work? Thanks
    • yes make a bat with a xcopy command and call that bat. the xml that calls the app will have trouble if you only upload the url shortcut and try to call xcopy from the system directory. You can do it but it is a pain and fails more often when you call the app from someplace other then the task distribution source directory
