View Full Version : Create Shortcut Bug
01-19-2005, 03:15 PM
When creating a shortcut to a file with spaces in the URL, the shortcut fails to launch. The shortcut needs to have quotes around paths with spaces in order to fix the problem.
Let me know if you need more info to reproduce this...

What do you mean by 'creating a shortcut'? How are you launching it after creating it? Please provide a little more detail on reproducing the problem. Thanks.

Use "Create Desktop Shortcut Alt+Q" from the Item menu.
That sends an icon to the desktop. If the path that is referred to by that shortcut contains a space, it doesn't work properly. Manually adding quotes around the path fixes it.
So, if the properties of the shortcut created is this:
"C:\Program Files\UltraRecall\UltraRecall.exe" C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\test.urd /item 1000
Then updating it to this fixes it:
"C:\Program Files\UltraRecall\UltraRecall.exe" "C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\test.urd" /item 1000
