shortcut problems

Good day all,

One of our apps is installed on a school's local network. The sys  
admin has created shortcuts to the program on the desktops of all the  
computers. Double clicking the shortcut will start the program, but  
the program can't find other stacks it should open.

The program consists of a stand alone application, which is actually  
a splash screen with options for the user to select. Each option will  
open another stack. These other stacks are located in the same folder  
as the stand alone application.

We did some testing. It turns out that the program sometimes thinks  
the defaultURL is the URL of the desktop where the shortcut is  
located (C:/Documents and Settings/carels/Bureaublad) instead of the  
folder where the program is located (//Bellefleur/M-schijf/Leerlingen/ 
de dijk/hardinxveld.exe). How can this be? What can be done about it?

Kind regards,
