View Full Version : HEEELP! Shortcut's target pointing to network drive

07-26-2002, 08:03 AM

I start getting really upset with trying to do something that MIGHT seem very simple to do.

I simply want to make a setup that creates a shortcut pointing to T:\DIRECTORY\FILE.EXE. Easy, isn't it?

Well I can't get this setup working because I get an error 1327 - Invalid Drive T:\

I have repackaged my setup with AdminStudio 3.5 but I know the problem was already there with previous versions.

I know that if I map the drive before install, it will work, but I don't want to do this. THERE MUST BE ANOTHER WAY TO MAKE THIS SETUP WORKING !!!

PLEASE HELP !! I hate losing my timeon such stupid things.

Hello bertilh ,

Create a Property in Property Manager in Author:
Property Name: SC_PATH Value: T:\Folder

Now Create a non advertised shortcut. Go to the Direct Editor and then in Shortcut table, Change the Target for the shortcut you just created to [SC_PATH]\File.exe

This should work. Let me know if you need more help on this.

If the problem is an arguement that is pointing to network drive and you wish the icon to be published still (self healing etc) then we have found that creating the icon, and then including it in the package as a file, being copied to

[StartMenuFolder]\programs etc etc is perfectly o.k.

Example with a runline of:

c:\orant\bin\f45run32.exe f:\oracle\apps\mars.fmx
