SHORTCUT command failure

I was using the SHORTCUT command to analyze a .lnk file copied from another
system. Only the original system has an F: drive, and the shortcut file
references that drive. Twice during the execution of the command a Windows
error dialog popped up. Choosing "continue" both times resulted in the
correct analysis. V11 B26 under WinXP Pro SP3.

Rex, when SHORTCUT is used to analyze, a very likely reason is to determine
what change is needed to adopt the shortcut file to a new environment. Can
you suppress the error messages? They are not relevant to the purpose of the
command in any event.

I cannot suppress the error popups; they're occurring inside the Windows COM
API, not in TCC.
