+ 0 Votes Manually launch it... Rob Kuhn 1 year ago Is this shortcut/link calling a batch or command (.cmd) file? If not try this - This is assuming it's a Windows OS: right click on the shortcut/link. Copy the "Target" (click in the field and press CTRL-A then CTRL-C). Click the Win icon in the taskbar, select Run and paste it (CTRL-V) in the "Open:" field and click OK.
