Changing a shortcut advanced properties

Recommended Posts


Ok on the machines we setup at work we always give them a number of free programs to use after a format

The one in question is Spybot Search & Destroy

We add a shortcut on the desktop to encourage them to use it, but when we update it before they get the machine back, we also immunize the system

and we run immunize as admin so i normally end up manually changing this on the shortcut.

Is there a way to automate this via registry?

Ive just spent several hours searching for this and i cant find much at all

Hopefully someone will know

You can get the shortcut properties, delete it and create a new one. FileCreateShortcut, FileGetShortcut.

But there's maybe (for sure?) a better way.
