Use VBScript:
With CreateObject("WScript.Shell").CreateShortcut("C:\Some\Path\Shortcut.lnk")
  .TargetPath = "C:\Some Other\Path\app.exe"
  .WindowStyle = 1
  .IconLocation = "C:\Some Other\Path\app.exe, 0"
  .Description = "Shortcut"
  .WorkingDirectory = "C:\Some Other\Path"
End With

Thanks man. One quick question though, the image isn't showing up with the original opac.exe desktop icon, it works fine though. Im just thinking teachers wont use it because it doesn't look like the normal "OPAC" icon

You'll have to hunt down the icon and modify the script accordingly. If it's not in the .EXE, it's probably an .ICO in the same folder.
