Right-click your shortcut file, select PROPERTIES, then post a screenshot here of that popup.

Thanks Dean,

tweaked it a little, and got it working

It didn't behave like my old Acad 2008 shortcut ... but oh well

 

StartMenu Shortcut Target now reads:

"C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2012 - English\acad.exe" C:\A-dwgs\Cros_MTN.dwg
