I try to figure out if a shortcut is a real msi shortcut or not (outside of an msi installation)

like this i started to use method GetShortcutTarget()

in sdk: object.GetShortcutTarget(Shortcut)
object = windows installer object.

but if i try

set i = createobject("WindowsInstaller.Installer")
i.GetShortcutTarget(<valid path to lnk file>) i get the error

Error: Object doenn'*t support property or method i.GetShortcutTarget
Code: 800A01B6

system: w2K, sp3 + sp2 (not dependent on engine)

any helping hand around?

I get the same here on W2K, I'd say it doesn't exist...

There does appear to be a "ShortcutTarget" however, if so it takes different parameters.
