Open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV RoleTailored Client in Configuration Mode - Part 02

If you didn't went through the first part of the blog here is the link to it.

If you have read the first part of the blog of "Open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV RoleTailored Client in Configuration Mode" and paid very close attention to the second command of it, you might have seen something interesting.

If you haven't just take a closer look at it because the second method I will be discussing in this blog post is extension of the second command.
 Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe -configure -profile:"profileid"  

Any sparks?? To give a small hint, create a Microsoft Dynamics NAV Windows Client shortcut in the desktop and check the properties of it.

If you check on the target : 
 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\90\RoleTailored Client\Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe"  

It is the same as our second command, in fact it has the first command concatenate as well. 

So what we need to do is, we need to add the missing part to it and we will be creating a new icon which will help us to open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV in Configuration mode.
 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\90\RoleTailored Client\Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe" -configure -profile:"profileid"   


I just add the part which in blue color and once we put that back to the target of the shortcut and close the properties window we will be good to go. (Replace the "profileid" with the Profile ID you want to configure.)


With the Target of the shortcut you can do many things, just try to play around.. I will write another blog post about things you can do with the target. 

Please provide your feedback with a comment. 
Thank you and Regards,
