Q. How can I create a shortcut to the Manage Your Server applet, or open it from the command-line?

The shortcut to Manage Your Server is normally located in the Administrative Tools folder of the Start menu.

If you lost your shortcut, set the Target of a new shortcut to:

%SystemRoot%\system32\mshta.exe res://%SystemRoot%\system32\mys.dll/mys.hta
By default, the Start in should be set to %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%.

To open the Manage Your Server applet from a CMD.EXE window, simply type:

%SystemRoot%\system32\mshta.exe res://%SystemRoot%\system32\mys.dll/mys.hta
