    Introduction

    The 'Target Path' in a shortcut created using a 'Create Shortcut' action is truncated when the path was not available when the action executed.

    Detail

    This is due to a Microsoft limitation (See MS article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/263324)

    Ensure that the path is available while the create shortcut action is executing (by mapping a drive / performing a subst) or pre-create the shortcuts and use a file copy action.
