shortcut for rpd with IP prepopulated

Hey all having some issues trying to make a script to create an RDP shortcut on the public desktop with the IP address pre populated when i click on the short cut its telling me invalid connection file specified (same message if i used host name or IP ) here's the script I'm working with


$wshshell = New-Object -ComObject WScript.Shell
$lnk = $wshshell.CreateShortcut("C:\Users\Public\Desktop\RDP Shortcut name.lnk")
$lnk.TargetPath = "%windir%\system32\mstsc.exe"
$lnk.Arguments = "/v:$ IP address or host name here"
$lnk.Description = "RDP!"

  • I recommend manually creating the shortcut once, then copying it to each target with a File Copy step.
