GMSC 2018 u3 - create custom shortcut at first launch

Hello,

Is it possible to create a custom shortcut of GMSC app at first lauch of it?

By default, the AppLaucher creates the following tree in the start menu:

-> Star menu

   -> GeoMedia Smart Client

      -> GeoMedia Smart Client [...]

 

We would like to have directly

-> Star menu

   -> Custom App Name

 

Thank you!

Yohann.

Hi Yohann,

 

not sure about this, but the latest version allows to start the AppLauncher without creating any shortcut.

Hi Yohann,

 

first of all, you need the version 16.5.331.2, which I am not sure you have access to. If not, let me know and I will send you it via file catalyst. Then if you have installed this version, the AppLauncher accepts the following options for start:

 

AppLauncher.exe ALLUSERS=2 APPDIR="C:\Hexagon\App Launcher"

  APPLAUNCHEROPTIONS="--auto-update=false --create-shortcuts=false"

 

so few more things as you can see. I hope the meaning is straightforward.

Re: GMSC 2018 u3 - create custom shortcut at first launch

Hi Pavel,

 

I am excited about what you have posted! I always was wondering if there were any arguments for the AppLauncher.exe to configure the installation path and the download path for GMSC resources, like JRE image, Jar files and so on.

 

Studying the com.hexagon.applauncher.core.AppLauncher class, I came across the "base-directory"-parameter which seems to control the path where GMSC downloads are saved to (using jimage on GMSC 16.5.316.4 AppLauncher).

 

I think it would be great to get an official documentation of the AppLauncher's arguments!
