View Full Version : Are dynamic shortcuts possible?

I need to create a shortcut where the target is a potentially different value based installation options. Is this possible? It is a web app, which comes with it's own web server for evaluation....when the web server installs it finds an available port and starts listening on it....I want to place a shortcut in the start menu to browse to the web app, so it would be an Internet shortcut with the target "http://localhost:?/whatever"....the problem is the port will be different depending on what software is already on this machine....how can I get this port number into the shortcut?
