While I'm using the shortcut, I get the error message (ie. file not found) but this software works smoothly in the source drive.

Have you tried resetting your shortcut? Make sure you are accessing the same file that you use from the source drive, and test it by clicking the “Open File Location” button in the shortcut properties box.

    Welcome to ITKE, Renjithpac! Does the software program open up through the Start Menu? If you have another user account, I would suggest trying that to see if the issue still occurs.

    Try deleting the shortcut, and creating a new one.

    The 'source drive' is by any chance a removable disk?  It might be that the operating system is assigning a different drive letter than the one configured in the shortcut.

    You can right click and then select properties. Verify the target has the correct path to your program application. If not correct it or do as Carlosdl said, delete it then recreate it.
