    Deploy Shortcut on all user desktop for "Purple Mash"

    My 1st post :-)
    Has anyone got a small script to add a Purple Mash shortcut to the all users desktop in XP and also the Public Desktop in W7?

    Thanks

    If you have server 2008 you could use group policy preferences: Deploying desktop shortcuts via GP for 32-bit programs on 64-bit O/S - Spiceworks

    Use the computer settings (rather than user) and look for the shortcuts option under preferences > Windows settings > shortcuts. this has an option for the all users desktop

    Thanks, I have just found it in GP, does this work for both XP & W7 desktops? I couldnt see anything to distinguish between the 2.

    You can create 2 shortcuts, but use item level targeting to target 1 shortcut for XP & the other for 7. Item level targeting can be found on the common tab when you create the shortcut (see post by mike1879 in the linked post above.
