A .lnk file is not recognized as an executable by Java. You have to call Cmd.exe and pass the .lnk file as an argument on the command line:

Code:
ExecuteProcess("Cmd.exe", CreateArray("/c", "C:\\Users\\Public\\Desktop\\firefox.lnk"), null, true)
Or else just copy the command line out of the link properties and call that directly.
