NAV 2015 Administration Tool Icon is missing

In certain scenarios I can’t locate the shortcut to the ‘NAV 2015 Administration Tool’. So I’ve done some research. This problem happens if NAV has been installed by another user account. When you login as a different account you can’t find this specific Tool. As a workaround you can then easily create a new shortcut. The shortcut target should look like this:

C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\PowerShell.exe  -NoExit -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned " & ' C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\80\Service\NavAdminTool.ps1 ' "

Of course it’s also possible to start the Administration tool from the Powershell ISE by loading the NavAdmin Tools.ps1 module by using the Import-Module cmdlet.
