Configure shortcut to use new browser window.

Hey everyone, I've got a question.

We have some desktop shortcuts that were created for users to access Oracle
based apps. Essentially the shortcut is nothing more than a URL. The
problem that the users are having is that if they're using a JRE based app in
an IE window, and they click on another shortcut to open a Jinitiator based
app, the browser crashes and they get the following error:

"Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error"
Program Files: C\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.exe
The application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.

I was wondering if there's a switch that can be added in the shortcut to
make sure it opens in a new window?

Thanks,

Best Regards,

Hi,
This can be done by placing shortcuts to iexplore.exe on the desktop, then
modifying the target to include the URL

Example:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE"
becomes
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" www.yahoo.com
Note a space between " and w

Hope this helps,
