Shortcut Icon to connect to a specific Database

In NAV 2013 & NAV 2009 we can give out Shortcuts in Windows different parameters in order to automatically open a default Database / Company.

Typically this can be used for Test System / Live System differentiation.

This can be done as follows:

1. Copy / Create a new Shortcut.
2. Use the below example to form your parameter string and then input this into the ‘Target’ field. Change the values where applicable. Remember also to change the ‘Start In’ value to match the program files where the program is located.

“C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Dynamics NAV70RoleTailored ClientMicrosoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe” “DynamicsNAV://Middle_Tier:XXXX/Database/Company/”
