    I would like run a VBScript that creates a specific Shortcut file and pin it to the users bottom taskbar.

    I manually created a Shortcut file (*.lnk) and drag it to the taskbar and it works.

    Here’s my Target path:

    “C:Program Files (x86)AdobeAcrobat 9.0AcrobatAcrobat.exe” “\filesDATAHRPhone ListPhoneListPHONELST.pdf”

    My problem is the Acrobat. Everyone has a different version.

    Like…

    Acrobat 8.0
    Acrobat 9.0
    Acrobat 10.0
    Acrobat 11.0

    Is there some kind of wildcard we can use?

    I tried this and it did not work.

    “C:Program Files (x86)AdobeAcrobat “*”AcrobatAcrobat.exe” “\filesDATAHRPhone ListPhoneListPHONELST.pdf”

    Also, I found this link below.

    That it will pin a specific Shortcut file to the bottom taskbar. Anyway we can modify it so it can work like this….

    1.) User Logs into he/she computer.
    2.) It will create a Shortcut file using the user’s Acrobat version.
    3.) Then it will pinned the Shortcut file to the bottom taskbar.

    Please help!
