One shortcut = Two Programs
I am trying to create a shortcut that first runs a batch file (mapping a drive), then starts a program (interactive mathmatics). I think I remember that you could do that by seperating the two programs with a semi-colon, but it doesn't work anymore.
My first thought was to create a shortcut that runs another batch file which in turn runs the drive mapping batch and the IM program. That works, but also causes some problems. The ideal solution would be just one shortcut if possible.

have you tried putting both commands on seperate lines?
REM Begin batch file
net use z: \\servername\share
start C:\Program Files\SomeApp\SomeApp.exeHelicopters don't fly; they vibrate so much and make so much noise that the earth rejects them.
