View Full Version : INSTALLDIR used for shorcut's destination
03-01-2002, 08:12 AM
I've used INSTALLDIR for Destination computer's folder but in the same time I want to use it to create a new destination path for shorcuts.This is not possible.It is a limitation of InstallShield or just I don't use INSTALLDIR property correctly?

How are you trying to create the shortcut? INSTALLDIR can be used to create shortcuts (gee, what a pain if this wasn't true...)
There is no limitation I know about...

The only trick I've run into here appears to be when to use Quoted Paths (via LongPathToQuote) and when to use the raw path. The documentation for AddFolderIcon spells this out in detail, though the wording might require you to take a few passes of careful reading.

The problem is the following:I have a component and this comp.has an exe file it.I want to create a shortcut for this file and put it into a path.This path is created using value of INSTALLDIR,so I want to create a new destination path for this shortcut different from the implicit ones :Taskbar,Send To, Desktop.
This new path could be [INSTALLDIR]\xxx\yyy but after I create this path the path created as destination for the files is removed(wich has been created also using [INSTALLDIR] ) so if I want to create shortcuts I cannot to copy files .
