daddydave Posted January 30, 2007 Share Posted January 30, 2007 This is a going to sound like a crazy question, I admit, but you know how when you go through the New Shortcut wizard, and it says "Type the location of the item:", it doesn't let you create a shortcut to an item that doesn't exist? Is there any registry tweak that will cause the Windows shell to let you create the shortcut anyway even though it's invalid?In case you are wondering, what I am trying to do is create an application addon that copies a bunch of shortcuts to Start Menu\Programs which will be valid at the time of installation, but not necessarily on the machine I create the addon with. I have already discovered nircmd will let me create the invalid-at-design-time shortcuts, but I am curious if there is some trick to force the Windows 2000 or XP shell to do the same.
