  serialized: This element contains the base64-encoded ShellLink pointing to the location defined in the element. Windows 7 creates the ShellLink from the value of the element and properly updates this field on the first load of this library, so it should be left empty by the author.



This element can be used instead of when the location is on the file system or the connector is a known protocol handler (like mapi:). If is present, there MUST NOT be a element. For web service provider search connectors, use the element instead.
