Run shortcut files created by Google Chrome failing. QM Bug?
Hi Gintaras
I'm using Quick Macros Version

I use Chrome profiles, and have used "Create desktop shortcut" from Chrome for some of the profiles.
I can launch the Chrome shortcuts from Windows 10 File Explorer.
When I use Quick Macros to run a shortcut file created from Chrome, I get this error message: The specified path does not exist. Check the path, and then try again.
When I copy notepad.lnk into the same folder, I can launch it using Quick Macros run ok.
My test code in a QM function is: run "C:\tempc\z-test - Chrome.lnk"

I've attached an example shortcut file: z-test - Chrome.lnk.uuencode.txt

Thanks for your help,

I can't test your shortcut. My Chrome profile shortcuts don't have this problem.
