Creating shortcuts using zen7 for OpenOffice

Is it possible using Zen7 to create a shortcut to open an OpenOffice .odt file while OO is running as a virtual app?

Because I can't refer to an swriter.exe file in the zen7 object, how can I make this work?

You should be able to just reference OpenOffice.exe and pass in an ODT
file, and it will open swriter.

You may need to pass a blank .ODT file.

I created a zen7 object with following paramaters:
path to file: C:\Program Files\ZAV\openoffice.exe
parameters: C:\Documents and Settings\Mario\Bureaublad\test.odt

It doesn't start swriter.
Is this what you meant?

What trigger word to you have for swriter? Example, if you trigger word is swriter it would be like this:

path to file: C:\Program Files\ZAV\openoffice.exe
parameters: swriter "C:\Documents and Settings\Mario\Bureaublad\test.odt"
