I apologize from the outset, as I am brand new to Windows 7; I come from Linux Land.
I have a Java program that I have compiled on my Windows 7 box. I can run it without any problem from the command prompt. I want to create a link (I guess it is called a shortcut under Windows 7), so a user can just click on it.
I create the shortcut, and drag it to the desktop. I open up a window to look at the properties associated with the shortcut, and there is an entry to set the default program to open it with. (The default is something called Notepad, some kind of editor, I guess.)
I click the button to change it, and I get a new window that let's me browse other programs. I select Java (the exact program I called from the command prompt), but it doesn't work.
Also, while I am at it, where should I put the shortcut so other users can access it? (I have no idea about permissions, etc. under Windows 7.)
