Solution to shortcuts wich don't work
« on: April 11, 2009, 10:02:22 AM »
I've seen that some of you have problems, shortcuts which don't work with vista sp1. I had the same problem, CD launch only software which in C:\Program Files installed so the solution is to create shortcut of your softwares in this directory. For exemple if i have photoshop.exe in another place that C:\Program Files i put a shortcut of photoshop.exe in this directory and in item setting, in target i write C:\Program Files\Photoshop.lnk . Sorry for my English i'm French ^^.

Your English is more good enough to explain the solution.
Thanks for the tip, and thanks for taking the time to write it here!

Welcome Pommesky
And to Danationcoder.com, and CircleDocks little corner.
Excellent work, I thank you.

I would like to add this to the tutorial that I am currently writing, so I will attempt to verify.

As I understand it, if you have a program in another drive, you need to make a shortcut to the C drive, and then place a shortcut to CircleDock (Linked to the Shortcut), and in the Shortcut Target the argument should be:
C:/<wherever you placed the shortcut>

I hope I have this correct, I am certain I will have the hang of it, after doing a step by step.

Excellent work thanks

I would also like to place your username in the credit for this tutorial, for oyu having found the solution.
If opposed, please let me know.
