Run .lnk file instead of exe/bat?

Hi all!

Is it possible to run a lnk file from the start menu instead of an exe from the program files directory? I have installed a software that runs sth. more advanced thru a lnk file in the start menu and I'm not savvy enough to figure it out myself how to workaround it. Just being able to execute the lnk file with the wineskin interface would be my favorite solution. Is there a way to do it?

Thanks in advance!

no you cannot.. and there is no need to.  That is just a shortcut link pointing to an actual exe file.  Just point to the real exe file that link normally points to instead.

Sometimes, a Windows ShortCut have a command to the program.

Example: MotoRacer.exe -D3D

If you want to use it on Wineskin, create a file called start.bat with the program location and command inside.

Example: C:/Program Files/Moto Racer/MotoRacer.exe -D3D

Now, run your Wrapper using start.bat (remember to select the checkbox under the file selection field).
