Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.customize (More info?)

I have a massive music collection and wish to have a warning for my family
(so they don't rename any songs) appear everytime someone clicks on
"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\iTunes.ink"

I want the shortcut that opens 2 items:
first "C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe" for iTunes
second "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\iTunes rules.txt" for
the guidelines to not mess up my music library

I've tried but don't have skills sufficient to do it on my own.
Please help if you can or send me links to sites with info on how to do
this.
p.s. I don't mind having to code in order to get this done.

Thanks in advance

Put an ampersand between the two.

cmd /c "C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe"&Start "" "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\iTunes rules.txt"

You need Start as you are using file associations for the second item.

An ampersand (&) is the keyboard character that represents the word "and".
Excuse me ,David, I felt this entry was necessary for those of us long past
school days.

I think, a user account is in order. Set permissions to restrict writing to
the files.

Doopah,

I don't mean to be dense, but I don't get the idea behind your question. If
family members renaming files is a problem, how would displaying a message
pleading for them to stop be any more effective than you directly telling
them? If you've already has a discussion with the guilty party, then a
message shown on the screen isn't gonna change a thing. It sounds like you
need to do something about user permissions to prevent the problem from
occuring in the first place.
