Update Configuration File - Shortcuts to Create - 2

Settings - Shortcuts to Create 2Server Shortcut Name (Optional)
Used if you want to create a shortcut on the server for the users to click on.  If empty or not present this item will be ignored.   For example you may choose to create a shortcut with an "_" underscore at the front.  

If you use the Create User Setup Email option then, if not present, this shortcut will be created with the same name as the Desktop or Programs menu Shortcut in the same folder as the Auto FE Updater utility.

If desired you can place then in a server and share path of your choice.  Although this isn't really necessary this is included for backwards compatibility.

Shortcut CMD File Name (Optional)
The utility will create CMD or BAT files if this entry is present.  The CMD (or BAT) file can be required for Citrix Environments.    The batch files contain the same content as the the target property of the user shortcut(s) created by this utility.   The file name can contain a path.  If no path found then the CMD or BAT file will be created in the same folder as the Auto FE Updater utility.  You do not specify the CMD or BAT file extension.
