Using FileCreateShortCut to create an shortcut on users network Desktop folder. using customized icon. shortcut is created without a problem but icon is not displaying. I had to go manually on each Pc and change the icon. Any advise. If this is a icon cache problem then Can I fix using AUTOIT ?

$path = "\\users\Desktop

FileCreateShortcut("Y:\CamApps\Complain-SYSTEM\Facilities\HelpdeskSystem.exe",$path & $shortcutfilenamex, "Y:\CamApps\Complain-SYSTEM\Facilities", _
            "Tooltip description of the shortcut.","Y:\CamApps\Complain-SYSTEM\Facilities\Help6q.ico")

Maybe include the ICO file in the script...and then pull the image from the local directory. Maybe the user does not have the drive Y:\?

User's have Y drive and I am already including iconfiflename.ico on my script.  When I compile it creates icon but not on Users folder when I use Filecreateshortcut.
