Changing shortcut startup folder to a network drive.

(OP)
All machines that I am deploying the app to, have a V:\ drive mapped. Need to change the startup/working directory folder for all app shortcuts to point to the V:\ drive. Any quick solutions?

RE: Changing shortcut startup folder to a network drive.

Setup Editor ---> Product tab ---> Properties ---> Create a property called WKDIR and in the value type the V:\ or whatever you want your working directory to be. Then move on to the "Tables" tab ---> Shortcut ---> Scroll farthest to the right where you have the WkDir value ---> Type WKDIR there. Voala, we got a custom working directory. ;o)

Hope that helps, and good luck m8.

Regards
Jim
