Med-V Shortcut to folder not publishing to guest OS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    Sorry if I am posting this to the wrong area of the forum but unsure where to post it.

    I have a med-V setup and for a particular group of users there is a need for a shortcut to a folder on the guest operating system to be published to the Windows 7 start menu.

    The shortcut is being created in the XP workspace and placed in the correct folder on this but its not showing up (being published) to the host OS.

    I've searched the web and only application publishing seems to be disscussed and I can't find an answer to this issue.

    Is anyone able to offer some advise?

    Many thanks

    I created a bat file with the following commands in it :

    #echo off

    start %windir%\explorer.exe "c:\Program Files\app name\app folder\Document"

    Saved this to the all users start menu, programs folder and its working.

    Maybe not the cleanest solution but still,,it works and I am happy :)

    Thanks all.

  • If possible I need to know how to do this manually.
