Desktop Shortcut for BC with Profile/Role

    In NAV2013R2, I know that you can create a desktop shortcut to open a specified Role Center as follows:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics NAV\71\RoleTailored Client\Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe" "dynamicsnav://ServerName:7060/InstanceName/Company Name/" -profile:"Role ID"


    I'm trying to do the same thing for Business Central (version 13), but the -profile command switch does not seem to work.

    Does anyone know if this can be done with BC and how?

    I'm not sure what was going on last week when I tried, but this is working now:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central\130\RoleTailored Client\Microsoft.Dynamics.Nav.Client.exe" "dynamicsnav://server-name:9999/Instance-Name/company-name/" -profile:"role-id"

    I've been caught on this a few times by having spaces after the colon (e.g. profile:[space])
