Hello,

can anyone help to resolve the issue below...,
The code below creates Desktop shortcut,
however the target path in the newly
created icon is missinterpreted...

...namely the /wrkgrp switch parameter is getting output as
\wrkgrp which prevents the shortcut from opening the
required file.

Thank you in advance

Mark
