Internet shortcut issue in HP ALM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I am sequencing HP ALM as internet plugin and created a shortcut which points to below url:


    When I launch the shortcut a normal user it is opening as : http://%22http//hpalm:xxxx/qcbin/start_a.jsp%22

    But if I launch the shortcut as admin then it is working fine.

    Any idea how to resolve this?

  • I'm not sure how to get rid of those random letters in the URL when launching shortcut as a Normal User.

    But, I can suggest you to use SHIM so that the shortcut will be always launched using Admin Privileges & so it works properly.

  • Hi Vinod,

    I have tried steps 1 and 5  in the link (http://app2pack.blogspot.com/2015/11/uac-and-app-v-50-demystified.html). But I am receiving the below error.

    I cannot perform the SHIM or registry method as this application will be deployed on server machines where we do not have any modify access to any physical files/registries.

  • how does your shortcut look like in the startmenu? %22 stands for a doublequote.

    Post also the part with shortcuts from your user -or machine deploymeny xml please
