Run an Advertised Shortcut without the ShortCut :>

3 posts in this topic

OK, The Title Sounds Quirky, but here is the deal.

When you run an "Advertised ShortCut", it will do some basic "Self-Healing".

What I would like to do is to be able to figure out what that ShortCut Calls so I can call it directly from an AutoIt App w/o needing to call the LNK file.

This way I do not depend on the existence of the LNK file.

Note: It will likely involve a DLL Call with MSI.DLL

MsiOpenPackageEX or something along those lines.
