Hi. I have 18 folders I want the setup to install. Each one has a .exe file. In shortcuts it says it automatically creates sdhortcuts to .exe files , but it hasnt created any shortcuts. The icons for the folders and the files have this multicoloured cube to the left. I want the shortcuts to the 18 .exe files .Also when I go to the shortcuts view and right click on desktop the the new shortcuts bit i clear and I cant click on it. What can I do? :confused: Im very new to this stuff.Thanks.

Hi gigurtsis,

This is how it works:
Each of your exe's is in it's own component in your setup. In the Setup Design pane open the files section of each component and make sure all your exe's are the key file of your component (if not right click and choose 'Set key file').
Next go to the Sortcuts section of each component and create a new advertised shortcut by right clicking the location where you want the shortcut to appear and selecting 'New advertised shortcut'. All you have to do is give the new shortcut an appropriate name!

Good luck!
