Add applications to the Dock via Apple Remote Desktop
Authored by: island on Oct 07, '08 03:44:15PM

any help with this:
I am using apple remote desktop 3.2. I want to add icon on the dock for student account. I am getting this error when I tried this command:

defaults write /Users/student/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock \
persistent-apps -array-add '<dict><key>tile-data</key><dict>\
<key>file-data</key><dict><key>_CFURLString</key>\
<string>/Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/Microsoft Word.app</string><key>_CFURLStringType</key>\
<integer>0</integer></dict><key>file-label</key><string>Microsoft Word NAME</string>\<key>file-type</key><integer>41</integer></dict><key>tile-type</key>\string>file-tile</string></dict>'




Error message:

is-lab31 (206.78.xx.xx)
2008-10-07 11:31:27.419 defaults[1025:10b] Could not parse: <dict><key>tile-data</key><dict>\

<key>file-type</key><integer>41</integer></dict><key>tile-type</key>\
<string>file-tile</string></dict>. Try single-quoting it.


Also, I tried using " ", but same error message.
