  1. From a 'Run' command it is possible to open a pdf file in Acrobat Reader with parameters:e.g. "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 10.0\Reader" /A "zoom=100" "K:\Documents\mypdf.pdf"and it is possible to make a desktop shortcut manually to do the same thing. I'd like to be able to create a such a shortcut programmatically using vbscript for example, so as to ensure my particular pdf file is only opened in Acrobat Reader and NOT Acrobat or any other pdf reader which might be installed.

     Set Shell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")ARpath = Shell.Regread("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\AcroRd32.exe\path")ARapp = Shell.Regread("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\AcroRd32.exe\")PDFfile="K:\Documents\mypdf.pdf"sctarget = """"& ARapp & """" & " /A " & """zoom=100"" " & """"&PDFfile&""""msgbox sctargetShell.run sctarget

    this works fine so far, but the shortcut creation part throws up an error.

    DesktopPath = Shell.SpecialFolders("Desktop")Set link = Shell.CreateShortcut(DesktopPath & "\mypdf.lnk")link.WorkingDirectory = ARpathlink.TargetPath = sctargetlink.Save

    Any suggestions?
