How to run a shortcut?

Recommended Posts

coppercobra

I have a shortcut of a program I want to run on my computer. How would I make Autoit execute that shortcut file? I can't seem to figure it out because even with the "Hide my extensions" disabled in Windows XP the shortcut does not have any extensions such as .exe and such. So is there a way to run the shortcut? I already know how to run the real program through autoit, but now I just want to learn how to run the program's shortcut.
