I have a Windows 7 machine with a new install maybe 2 months old. I create a shortcut either by right clicking the folder and sending a shortcut to the desktop or by manually creating one. The shortcut works fine when you just click on it, but when you go to open a document in Word 2010 and try to use the shortcut, the "Location not available" message pops up. I know why this is happening. The shortcut goes to C:\Program Files\[folder], when that message comes up it looks like it is trying to open the same path but C:\Program Files(x86)\[folder], which doesn't exist. Why is it changing the path? I was just wondering if anyone had seen this before as Google has yielded nothing.
