Script for updating Office 2003 to 2010 shortcuts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    the upcoming week we plan to update all our pc's from Office 2003 std to Office 2010 std. We do not manage the shortcuts the users have on their desktops, quick launch bar, startup folder etc. But the most shortcuts have Excel, Word or Powerpoint in their name.

    To make it for the user as easy as possible we're looking for a solution that checks if the user has a shortcut in i.e. the startup folder. If it exists than it has to be replaced with the Office 2010 shortcut of the application. If not exists then do nothing. I can't find a decent script that handles wildcards well. Any out there already tackled this problem?
