Can I launch a program with a script by "kicking" the shortcut *.lnk not the *.exe?

If it is possible, which command handles it?

Thanks.

Doesn't the *.lnk already does exactly want to want to do? :)

$LnkShort = FileGetShortcut("C:\Notepad.lnk")

Run($LnkShort[0])

Func FileGetShortcut gets .lnk details puts them in array one of the things it gets is the file dirctory which is returned in $var[0]
