Set up a shortcut to ACT

By default, the Attachmate Customization Tool (ACT) can be opened only from a command line but you can create a desktop shortcut and set the shortcut properties to open this tool. Although creating this shortcut is optional, you will find that it saves time when you are working with ACT.

To set up a desktop shortcut that opens ACT

  1. On your administrative installation point, right-click on the setup.exe file and choose Create Shortcut.
  2. Right-click on the shortcut and choose Properties.
  3. In the Target field, add the /admin option to the end of the command line. For example:

    \\myServer\adminInstallPoint\setup.exe /admin

    CAUTION: Make sure the path in the Target field is referenced with a Uniform Naming Convention (UNC) format. Do not use drive letters in the path name. Using drive letters can cause problems when you try to use the shortcut on other workstations.

  4. Rename the shortcut and save it on the desktops of your workstation and on the server that you are using for your administrative installation point.
