    This works well but is there a way when creating a shortcut to run in a certain browser such as IE or Chrome when the shortcut is created?

    I just got this working using a different method. I'll e-mail you some of the files to test, but most likely I will add them all to a 'shortcuts' pack and put that up here as a different download.

    This works great with the additional procedures

    Hi guys, I came across your XML script and it works really good when manually pushing it to users as it asks for Shortcut name and URL but i am trying to automate the deployment by placing it on a policy and i can't get around filling out the XML file with the URL i need pushed so that it just goes and creates the shortcut. Any advise would be really appreciate it.

    Is there one to deploy a shortcut for an exe shortcut?

    Should be fairly easy to modify the xml to create a shortcut linking to any arbitrary file, but I haven't tried it.

    Get the file path of the exe and use that in place of the URL. 

    The procedure will use the #shortcutURL# variable and place a '.url file' extension at the end. A shortcut to a normal file is usually a '.lnk' file so change that part.

    Good luck

    Sounds like this works well for web site urls. Is there a way to modify, or do you know any other methods, for deploying a shortcut link to a file on an internal server? I need to send out an updated link for computers to map to certain drives once connected to VPN to run a batch file to map network drives.

    I just copy an pre-built shortcut from a shared location or from Kaseya's Managed Files.
