Batch file to change the icon of a shortcut RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have shortcuts on my desktop for  a new wim I am wanting to capture. The problem is that I want to change the icon of those files using a batch file. Is that possible?

  • Not being so script-savvy myself, I would take a target machine with the application(s) on it, create a shortcut, then change the icon.

    Next I would move that icon link to my MDT server and test out an 'xcopy' command to copy it to the public desktop folder and see if it launches the app.

  • Here is a link to a Scripting Guy article where he uses a VBScript to do this.  I dont think a batch can do everything you are looking for.  I am assuming you are trying to use an icon in a dll, because this is how this script he shows works.

  • The shortcuts are not in a dll they are just located on a local folder on the machine.
