How does one access the properties of a .lnk

Recommended Posts

Erkie

Here is what I am up against. On servers I just built, I need to

right click on a program's shortcuts, (there are two of them)

click on properties,

click on the compatibility tab, select run this program as Administrator

click on apply

click on ok

I can not for the life of me figure out how to call the "properties" of a .lnk file. I have tried Shellexecute, I have fiddled with filegetshortcut. Hell I have even tried to find in the registry where this is set for these programs. I think I am down a rat hole and am missing something obvious. Any ideas? I have looked in the forums and can't find anything on this... Leading me to believe I am having a low caffeine moment.

Try function FileGetShortcut to retrieve details about a shortcut. Just noticed that FileGetShortcut doesn't provide the information you require.

Maybe this helps.
