SYMPTOMS

On a Windows Vista-based computer or on a Windows Server 2008-based client computer, you create a shortcut to a DFS link in the Favorite Links folder (%Userprofile%\Links). However, when you try to click the shortcut in Windows Explorer, the contents of the DFS share do not appear.

Note This problem does not occur if the shortcut points to a DFS root folder or if the shortcut uses the UNC path for the target share.
