Loading applicationoptions.xml on startup not working correctly

I am trying to get Autodesk Inventor Professional 2012 to load applicationoptions.xml on inventor start up by altering the icons target to include /IMPORTOPTIONS="\\<servername>\<filepath>\applicationoptions.xml" which works somewhat (have tried from a network share as well as the local machine itself).


Some setting such as content centre location are not being imported from the .xml file while others such as template path are (both are on a network share).  If we manually load the .xml in using import all the settings come in correctly but we would like to use group policy to set the altered target path for the inventor icon so when users open inventor by default inventory will load the .xml file so all users have exactly the same settings and if we need to change the default settings we can just update the .xml file and next time the user opens inventor the new settings get applied.
