FileGetShortcut does not read after .exe

Recommended Posts


I got a strange thing, the function "FileGetShortcut" does not read the extra paramaters after a shortcut executible.


Local  $sFilePath =  "dummy.lnk"
Local $array = FileGetShortcut($sFilePath)

Target in my .lnk: C:\dummy\client.exe 0ac66d68
Array[0] output is "C:\dummy\client.exe" but it should be this "C:\dummy\client.exe 0ac66d68"

Does someone knows why i cant read the full target?

with kind regards,
