I have a Windows 2003 shortcut with permission for certain users to be able to open it the on the server. What I am trying to do is make a shortcut for all users on the desktop that allows them to open the shortcut with a certain users credentials without having to type them in. The shortcut will be on WinXP machine mostly but some Win 7 machines. Is this possible if not what is the best work around? . The path I'm trying to create a shortcut for is \\Sebm_mapserver\TestTkr\TestTkr.exe For example the user that has permission to open the file is Wombo password: Combo Thanks for any help.
