Backslash disappears in App-V shortcut
I have a problem with shortcuts in App-V 5.x When I create shortcuts to an executable with parameters like \\SERVERNAME\Sharename\Prowin32.exe -basekey "INI" -ininame \\SERVERNAME\Sharename\inifile.ini and I publish the sequence, the shortcut changes in \SERVERNAME\Sharename\Prowin32.exe -basekey "INI" -ininame \SERVERNAME\Sharename\inifile.ini (1 backslash is missing from the location of the inifile).
I tried putting in more backslashes or put the location between "" but nothing seems to work.
Does anyone know this problem? And hopefully know the solution?
Create a batch file file with the command/parameters you want to use use. And in the sequence or post sequence create a shortcut to the batch file - you'll need to capture the batch file of course.
This should do the trick.
Without knowing what your application is, I have a feeling you are creating a shortcut to a network executable which does not reside in the package - App-V wasn't designed to be used this this way. The method above allows App-V to load the "bubble" then punch out to the network executable.
