To create the shortcut to the Go Venture SImutlation PLay program you create a vbscript and batch file.

Create a VBScript and define the shortcut name and path to where the shortcut links to.

Save the vbscript in the apps folder - in our example the script is called go.vbs

'Create a WshShell Object

Set WshShell = Wscript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

strOS = WshShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%OS%")

If strOS = "Windows_NT" Then

  strVerKey = "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\"

  strVersion = WshShell.regread(strVerKey & "ProductName")


 strVerKey = "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\"

 strVersion = WshShell.regread(strVerKey & "ProductName")

End if

retVal = InStr(strVersion,"XP")

If retVal = 0 Then






End If

'Create a WshShortcut Object

Set oShellLink = WshShell.CreateShortcut(StrPath& "\Desktop\Go Venture Simulation Play.lnk")

'Set the Target path for the shortcut

oShellLink.TargetPath = "\\\apps\goventure investment\simulation\play.exe"

'Save the shortcut


Now create a Batch file to run the vbscript to configure the Go Venture Simulator shortcut - save this in the apps folder


cd \

cscript \\\apps\go.vbs


Create a third party template to run the batch file.

The shortcut will look like this to the end user
