[python-win32] How to read the target of a Windows Shortcut

Thank you for sending me the link. I tried it by copying the
"shortcut_target(filename)" function into my script. But it does the
same thing as I had mentioned in my previous e-mail. i.e It returns me
the target path correctly if the target exists physically in my hard
disk, but behaves in a wrongful manner if I delete the target keeping
the shortcut intact (Broken shortcut). In that case it creates an empty
file (0 size) with the same name as that of the existing target &
creates it at the same physical location where the target was existing
before. Looks like a bug in this function.
I want to see it fail in that case or return something lie NONE , but it
still returns me the target path.

Well I don't know if this was one of the solutions with which
you were "not satisfied", but it does at least have the merit
