  • Shortcut storing UNC instead of Mapped drive

    On an installation on a terminal server environment (using citrix), we are seeing that the shortcuts being created are storing the UNC to the exe vs. the drive name.

    %appdir% = m:\tracker
    yet the icon is
    \\kci_test_ts2\appfiles\tracker\tracker.exe

    m: = \\kci_test_ts2\appfiles

    so; how can I force it to use the DRIVE letter over the UNC ?

    Thanks mark.... I seem to have discovered that.

    Very annoying "attribute" of windows... If I wanted the UNC stored, I'd store it; but... As I'm fond of saying "Bill knows best" He must. Right?

      Hi,

      As far as I know Windows handles this, so it would be Windows, not Setup Factory, that is expanding the path.

      This means that there is no way to force the shortcut to use the drive letter.
