Launching win7 start menu items

question, the error says
Windows cannot find 'C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories\Snipping Tool.lnk'

it's here: C:\Windows\system32\SnippingTool.exe

It seems to me that the problem is that the shortcut target is %windir%\system32\SnippingTool.exe. I think that the %windir% in the path is confusing FARR.

the %windir% seems to have confused even Explorer.

On Win7 64-bit, there are *two* program File folders - the one you would expect to find and another called Program Files (x86) for 32 bit apps.

I've seen a number of vendors' scripts for their products fail because they did not make the distinction.  Dunno if this is related (probably not as yer talking about windir) but there might be some similar changes in other locations that you should be aware of also.

^ On 64-bit windows, there's also the SysWOW directory... that might be the problem too...

Stoic Joker:
I took a quick remote peak at my x64 box and the path on it is indeed also:
