NAV 2016 Administration Shell shortcut is missing

When you perform an installation of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 depending on the choices you make during setup the following shortcuts will be created:

  • Dynamics NAV 2016 Administration
  • Dynamics NAV 2016 Administration Shell
  • Dynamics NAV 2016 Development Environment
  • Dynamics NAV 2016 Development Shell
  • Dynamics NAV 2016

These will be created in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

However, the shortcut ‘Dynamics NAV 2016 Administration Shell’ will be installed in ‘C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs’

So if you login as another user you won’t find this Shortcut in your Start Menu. One workaround is to manually create the shortcut:

Create a shortcut en refer to: C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\PowerShell.exe -NoExit -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned ” & ‘ C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\90\Service\NavAdminTool.ps1 ‘ ”

A better solution would be to move ‘Dynamics NAV 2016 Administration Shell’ to the correct corresponding folder or of course if Microsoft does this already by design for you?
