We have a program here that requires every user to have a shortcut on their desktop that points to an ini file. Each file is unique to the user. Recently, we've done a new install of the application on a separate server. I'd like to be able to run a script on the client computers that will look at the current shortcut, alter the server name, then save it to the same location.
I reckon powershell will be necessary for this. Something to the effect of:
$oldargs = # Pull out the args from the current shortcut using voodoo magic $args = $oldargs -replace "server1", "server2" $WshShell = New-Object -comObject WScript.Shell $Shortcut = $WshShell.CreateShortcut("$env:PUBLIC\Desktop\app.lnk") $Shortcut.TargetPath = "%ProgramFiles%\appdir\app.exe" $Shortcut.Arguments = "$args" $Shortcut.WorkingDirectory = "%ProgramFiles%\appdir" $Shortcut.IconLocation = "%ProgramFiles%\appdir\pic.ico" $Shortcut.Save()
Really, I'm just lost on how I pull out the arguments from the current shortcut arguments.
