Does anybody knows how I can rename the Shortcut text of a shortcut with use of InstallShield scripts. I hope someone can help me.

I thank you in advance.

I think you want to rename an existing shortcut using InstallScript. If this is the case just locate and rename the LNK file.

I can't find any *.lnk file in the main directory of the Installshield project. Can you be more specific?

Perhaps I did not understand your original question. It sounded like you wanted to rename a shortcut that already existed on the TARGETMACHINE. If that is what you are trying to do then the .LNK file will be in a folder on the TARGETMACHINE already. Once you find it then just rename it.

If this is not what you are trying to do I'll need some more info.
