    Shortcut works but exe it points to doesn't

    I wanted to do summit I thought was very simple, call Windows Mobile from a batch file so I could update the synch folder with various files before the device synchronised but it doesn't work.

    The installer shortcut to Windows Mobile on the desktop points (according to the utility I ran) to C:\Windows\WindowsMobile\wmdc.exe and works but if I click directly on C:\Windows\WindowsMobile\wmdc.exe nowt happens. How come?

    Cheers for brill ideas.
