    I'm field testing this for possible use in my network and I've come across a few issues:

    1) Links to Network Drives- Is there a way to place links on the Mac desktop to Windows Network Drives?

    2) Links to Applications-I have shortcuts for apps that save as an .lnk file on the Mac Desktop. Running these shortcuts gives me the "Open File-Security" message each time I run them.
    I have taken the advice of Google to include \\.psf, in the Local Intranet settings in Internet Explorer, along with IP and share names of the Windows VM, but it still keeps prompting me for this. I've also tried the Group Policy settings with no luck. While the .lnk files work, I keep getting the prompt.

    Is there another way to do this besides PSF?
