Subject Execute task via a shortcut button placed on desktop
Version 6.x
Date   07/22/2007
Message Hello, 
I have a chain that I would like to be able to execute via a shortcut button placed on the desktop. When the user clicks it, it would simply run. Perhaps similar to the way I am able to have notepad automatically open the file ver.txt by modifying my shortcut to notepad from
%SystemRoot%\system32\notepad.exe 
To: 
%SystemRoot%\system32\notepad.exe c:\ver.txt 
Perhaps something like: "C:\Program Files\Automize\Automize.exe" "Task Title" 
Any suggestions would be appreciated. 
Regards,

Thanks for using Automize. 
Use the File menu / Task Runner feature. See the help on this feature. This gives you the commandline and working directory that you can use to create a batch file. When you click on the batch file, the task will run. You can place a shortcut to the batch file on your desktop.
