.url file syntax and semantics RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to understand the difference between the url listed in the 'Web Document' tab, and the url listed in the 'details' tab of the properties of a .URL file?    I have a java web start app which creates a .url file on the desktop by using standard java.io to write:

    [InternetShortcut]
    URL=http://xyz.org/abc.jar
    IDList=
    HotKey=0
    IconFile=C:\whereever\abc.ico
    IconIndex=0

     

    everything is hunky-dory, except... 

    i manually delete that .url file,  rerun the java app, which rewrites the same file, but with a different url:   URL=http://somethinenew.com/

    now the detail tab url shows the new file, but the web document tab shows the previous file. double clicking takes me to the old url, not the new.  The info is obviously cached somewhere, but i neither know where, nor understand the fsm which governs the read/write/management of said cache. 

     

    which would be the proper forum?

     

    thanks
