    How to add an uninstall shortcut in the programs start menu ?



    Hi,

    in InstallShield 5.5 it was possible to add a shortcut in order to
    uninstall an application from the programs start menu. The shortcupt
    launched UNINST -f <TARGETDIR>\Uninst.isu

    That solution does not work with InstallShield 6.

    Could someone e-mail me how to do add such shortcut to uninstall my
    application from the programs stat menu ?

    Thanks for your help.

    Best regards.

    Your shortcut should point to <DISK1TARGET>\setup.exe

    Add the following line in your setup script...

    AddFolderIcon ( FOLDER_STARTMENU , "TestUnInstallShortcut" , UNINST +
    " -uninst" , TARGETDIR , "" , 0 , "" , REPLACE );

    Regards!
