Re: Game Does Not Start On Other Profiles

Re: Game Does Not Start On Other Profiles

The shortcuts use a command line to start DxWnd before loading game, so you would need to copy and paste path from "Everyone's Access" shortcut to new shortcut. here is an example of vanilla windowed command line.
