Need to install a Windows shortcut with ZENworks bundle.
With the fix, instead of using "Install File(s)" to distribute the shortcut, use "Copy File(s)" with the option "Create shortcut for the source file(s)"
Workaround: It is possible to "fool" Windows into selecting the .lnk file instead of the file it references, as follows:
- When preparing to upload files for the "Install File(s)" or "Copy File(s)" action, navigate to the directory containing the .lnk file you wish to upload, then enter
in the filename field, and click the "open" button, which will display just the directories and .lnk files - this step is essential
- Click on the .lnk file and click Open. Note that the .lnk file is shown
NOTE: After adding a link (lnk) manually, the file copy actions editor will remove it again if you re-edit the action. This is fixed in version 10.3.1 - see TID 7006265 "ZENworks Configuration Management 10.3.1 - update information and list of fixes" which can be found at https://www.novell.com/support
