I've read a couple posts that speak of similar situations, but nothing that addresses this need specifically. With all the experience on this board, I'm certain someone can help me out.

I have an application that a network admin will install on a server. I would like to include with this installation a "client" install package that clients can "run" which would merely install a shortcut on the client machine that points to the application on the server.

My understanding of how to accomplish this is that I must first create an install package for the client that creates the shortcut. then I need to include this package (setup file) in the install package for the application.

My question is this, how can I tell the client shortcuts where to point to if the main application hasn't yet been installed, since I don't know where the application will be located?

Thank you for your help

Hi Frank,

Did you have any joy with the creation of a shortcut to the application on the server?

I need to do the very same thing, but can't find any info on it anywhere.

If you managed it I'd really like to hear from you.
