Applies To: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2

OEMWelcomeCenterLinks contains settings for shortcuts that appear as tasks in the OEM First Run application Jump List.

noteNote
This setting has been deprecated in Windows® 8. The information about this deprecated setting is provided for reference only. The OEM First Run application is not available in Windows 8.

Each of the settings under OEMWelcomeCenterLinks specifies the complete path and the file name of a shortcut file with a .lnk file name extension. The path to the shortcut file must refer to a location on the destination computer.

Each shortcut file must include the complete path of a corresponding program, Web page, or document.

We recommend that you do not add the shortcut by using the environment variable: %USERPROFILE%. Shortcuts added by using %USERPROFILE% are applied only to the profile of the next user to log on to the computer. Also, if the setting is applied during the auditUser configuration pass, the shortcut is applied only to the temporary administrator account, which is removed after the computer exits audit mode.
