I thought this would be trivial, however I cannot figure it out.

I am using Abbyy FineReader, which comes with a bunch of automated tasks that can be started from the Start Menu. I have created a new automated task, and I would like to invoke it from the start menu like the others.

enter image description here

However when I click properties on a shortcut, under the Shortcut tab, Target is grayed out and it doesn't contain anything that lets me edit it. Hence I cannot figure out how the existing shortcuts are working. I assume its just calling an exe with some arguments...

Any ideas?

Its probably linked to a dll used by Abby, you could use Process Monitor to capture what is being accessed when you click that link...technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645 –  Moab Apr 7 '11 at 16:01
    
Thanks that worked to determine what the shortcut did. If you add it as an answer I'll accept it. –  Iain Apr 8 '11 at 4:09
