hi,

i use ISE4 and have some problems with step 3, creating shortcuts in the program menue.
I use dynamicly linked folders in step 2/Files to store files in the [ProgramFilesFolder] and [WindowsFolder].
But if want to create a shortcut in in the program menue an be asked to choose the shortcut target there are no files in the target computers [ProgramFilesFolder] or [WindowsFolder].

What do I wrong ?

thanks for any help,
matthias

This is because you can't create shortcuts to dynamically linked files. This is because these files are not added to the project until you build (that's what makes them dynamic). So when you create the shortcut, Express can't determine what internal name that particular dynamically linked file will get at build time. The workaround would be to add the files you want shortcuts created for, in a normal fashion. When you add a file normally, it still creates a "soft-link" to the file. So if the file in the source location is updated, when you build in Express, it will grab this updated file.
