Delete File From Desktop In Current User Account...

3 posts in this topic

I am trying to delete a *.lnk shortcut file from the desktop at the end of my script. Since the script will be run in different user accounts, I need to know how to get to the current user's desktop. I tried:

FileDelete("@DesktopDir\Delete AutoPatcher folder.lnk")

Any Ideas?

First things first your code should be more like...

FileDelete(@DesktopDir & "\Delete AutoPatcher folder.lnk")

Notice the use of the & and where the quotes are placed.

Now if the above doesnt work for you then you may want to swap @DesktopDir with @DesktopCommonDir. I could have swore it wouldnt have worked in my case, but it did! So give it a try and let me know.

Hope this helps some,
