sorry if this is a dumb question, but is it possible to make a shortcut that runs more than one process? I run my vmware player services by batch just before I run vmware player (and end those same services by batch after I close it), and I was wonder if I could create a shortcut and have it run myservices.bat|vmwareplayer.exe both? or would it just be better to run these processes by batch, first the services start, then the vmwareplayer.exe? batch would prob be just fine, but i'd still like to know if it is possible to set a shortcut for more than one process and how to do it exactly. thanks in advance.
