WinShortcutter for Mac

Developer's Description

Do you work in a Windows dominant environment? Are your network drives packed with Windows Shortcuts that point to directories and documents? If you want to follow these shortcuts - here is the answer: WinShortcutter! WinShortcutter can follow Windows Shortcuts and open the corresponding document. If the Shortcut points to another network drive, WinShortcutter will also mount the drive before accessing the link. And if you want to do other Apple users a favor, you can also leave a proper Apple Alias aside of the Shortcut. WinShortcutter works right out of the box. Just doubleclick a link and the corresponding document will open. If you want to create an alias in addition to following the shortcut, simply activate the option in the system preferences. If your office network also allows AFP mounts, you can change the mount setting as well. Simply access the System Preferences for WinShortcutter.
