    Desktop Shortcut through KIX

    Can anyone help i want to create a shortcut for staff on the desktop of all the machines and was going to use KIX as my method of doing it. I have entered the following command in KIX but it wont work;

    copy "V:\Report Master III.lnk" "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop"

    as anybody any suggestions on what could be wrong with this line, the only thing i could think of is that it runs in a dos box so it may not recognise the long link to the all user desktop.

    thanks

    Good that you got it fixed in the end, the first command probably did not work because of permissions. Unless your staff have local admin rights on the computers in question they do not have permission to write to the all users directory. As the logon script is run using their credentials this was probably the problem.
