We have a few hundered users who use mandatory roaming profiles (restricted).  All profiles are stored on the network - none local.  Many of them have an auto-login with a generic username.  This is going to change soon as all users will be logging in using their own user name.  They will still remain members of the same OU and have the same group policies applied.  An application has been installed on all of these workstations and the shortcut to the application is in the All Users profile local on the workstation.  Due to the profile restrictions, the shortcut does not appear on their desktop, or in the Start Menu. How do I add the shortcut to the application to their start menu (or even desktop)?  Is there an easy way (login script or change in the GPO) to create the shortcut to this appliction for them to access?  Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!
