Launch windows executable Broken after First launch/Install

Hi Guys,

I got a weird situation here. Since in the prior 10.2 we didnt get a "CREATE SHORCUT" option, I was usually creating a new bundle called "Firefox Shortcut" and it was a Directive Bundle that would do the action of Launching a Windows Executable under C:\Program Files\mozilla firefox\firefox.exe with some switches like -profile "C:\profile". Nothing wrong with that, it was working for all my apps like Office, firefox, etc....

Now we get the new feature "Create ShortCut" but this does not give us the option to add the switch -profile ...

My problem is, when I create the Launch Windows Executable, it works for the first user, when I login again the bundle as lost is ICON and do not work anymore....

I tried to create this under INSTALL And under LAUNCH same results...this is very strange since we are just LAUNCHING A .EXE under program files.... which is a simple task....

Does anybody experienced this?

Seb

My first thought is that the OS has corruption in it's path statements,
for example: a bundle could be overwriting the %temp% variable so that
windows cannot find these files. Usually this happens when a snapshot
contains information that it shouldn't and so it's corrupting the OS
(Registry).

Can you try assigning the bundle to a machine that hasn't had any other
bundles installed? Also is this bundle just a launch action? If not, then
remove everything else from the bundle so it's simple.
