XIA Links provides a simple replacement to Desktop and Start Menu shortcuts allowing an administrator to control which shortcuts a user can see and to group shortcuts into sections. Ideally suited for educational environments, XIA Links also performs file existence checks before showing icons, thus removing the issues associated with mandatory user profiles where a link to an application fails when it is installed in different locations on different machines. XIA Links installs as a server product within IIS and has a client application based on Microsoft.NET which can be deployed and configured using Group Policy.
