Creating Windows Shortcuts to MS-DOS program

  CLONNEN 10:18 26 Jun 2005

I have managed to write some code which creates a shortcut in the Start Menu Accessories folder but when I click on it the MSDOS window runs the batch file and then terminates the session. I want the Command Line in the Shortcut Properties to say C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND.COM and have the Batch file line say C:\VDMSOUND\DOSDRV.BAT

At the moment the DOSDRV.BAT line is appearing in the command line in the Shortcut Properties. How do I edit the code to get what I want?

Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
StartMenuPath = WSHShell.SpecialFolders("StartMenu")
Set MyShortcut = WSHShell.CreateShortcut(StartMenuPath & "\Programs\Accessories" & "\VDMSound.lnk")
MyShortcut.TargetPath = "C:\VDMSOUND\DOSDRV.BAT"
MyShortcut.WorkingDirectory = "C:\VDMSound"
MyShortcut.Arguments = ""
MyShortcut.Description = "VDMSound for Windows 9x"
MyShortcut.HotKey = "ALT+CTRL+V"
MyShortcut.WindowStyle = 4
MyShortcut.IconLocation = "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\PIFMGR.DLL, 0"
