To create a shortcut that is usable over the network:
The shortcut that is created is called something similar to: Shortcut to hyperview_winsock.exe. To rename it to something that identifies it as DBDOC, right-click on it and choose Rename.
Next, verify that the shortcut was created properly. To do this right-click on the shortcut and choose Properties. The two fields we want to take a look at are Target and Start-in.
If your path name is very long (110 characters or longer), you will be unable to enter it. Use short names, which is usually the first six non-space characters of a folder name followed by "~1". You do not need to do this for every folder. Only do this for the long folder names.
For example, if your Start in directory was <"\\Computer Name\A folder with an extremely long name\Another folder with a long name\DBDOC\Hyperview\Programs\">, you could shorten it to <"\\Computer Name\Afolde~1\Anothe~1\DBDOC\Hyperview\Programs\">.
Once you have verified that the proper paths are in place, you need to tell it where to locate and open your M14 file from.
When the Hyperview kit was installed on your computer, a folder was created to hold M14 files. A path to that folder needs to be added after the target so Hyperview knows where to find M14 files. The easiest way to specify the M14 folder is to cut and paste the path from the Start in text box of the Shortcut Properties dialog.
When you are finished your shortcut should look like this:
This shortcut can now be copied to the desktop of any user who needs to be able to access your latest M14 file.
