    Programs installed via GP displaying "broken shortcut" program icon

    Hi


    I have some software deployed via group policy (in this case Rigolo 2 with the provided MSI). We are using a redirected desktop for the student logon where i have a few shortcuts placed including rigolo.

    This isnt really a major issue however it has bothered me as to why this happens; On some machines, Rigolo was installed manually (ie running the MSI off the cd using a local admin account) and the icon appears fine. On other machines where Rigolo was deployed from group policy, i get the "broken shortcut" icon, giving the illusion that the program is not installed (however it does work).

    What is causing this to happen and is there a way to fix it?

    Thanks

    Can't you set the broken shortcut to be deleted by GPP and then added again by GPP?

    Hi

    Im guessing you mean group policy preferences? Im afraid what im dealing with is a rather old Windows 2k3 setup with XP clients.

    Im more interested as a curiosity as to why this happens. The only major differences i know between deploying an MSI and executing it locally is one is automatic installation whilst the other is manual.

    Thanks
