xx Create a shortcut on the desktop
« Thread started on: Jul 13th, 2017, 09:57am »

Hello, I am trying to create an installation process (in LB) where a desktop shortcut is created that points to an executable file in an installation folder that the user has previously indicated. Is it possible to create a shortcut from an LB program?

Thanks for your attention.

Hello Yackare,

It was easy to do this in XP (someone even made a special DLL longtime ago).
Windows 10? Still possible but you need huge Windows programming skills.

Does Alyce's DLL not work on Windows 10?
