Windows 7: Warhammer shortcut

Warhammer shortcut

Hi, I am trying to use this method to launch Warhammer Online. In order to launch the program, you need to use the warpatch.exe file.

When I set that exe up with this method, it does not run. I get the quick command window I see on all the other programs I open this way (I assume its the task scheduler), but then nothing else happens.

The warpatch.exe file runs a patch program to check for patches to the game first. I am wondering if this is somehow stalling the task.

Any ideas?

Ok, let me explain better.

I am using the task manager to launch from a shortcut. The game I am trying to launch is Warhammer Online. The file name is warpatch.exe which will start the game if you click it, or from a shortcut, but if I use the Task Manager to start that file, it does not run.

Anyone know why that is?

Creating a shortcut without - shortcut written after the original name
as the titel declares, is there any patch or something to make Windows 7 shortcuts not rename theirselves to "application.exe - shortcut" but rename theirselves into just "application.exe"? I find it very annoying having to erase " - shortcut" from the name all the time.
