My project now installs and uninstalls fine but if I need to reboot the setup doesn't add the desktop shortcut. grrr. At what point is the desktop icon added so I can manually add it into my script.

I have an InstallScript project.

Shorcuts are created just after finishing OnFirstUIBefore function. you can note "Creating shortcuts.." text almost at the end of StatusEx dialog..i mean on completion state 100%..

you can very well create shortcuts thru Script in OnFirstUIAfter function.

Make sure to call ProgDefGroupType() before calling AddFolderIcon()so that the shortcut will be available for those user groups.

snippet:


ProgDefGroupType(COMMON);
nResult = AddFolderIcon (szProgramFolder, szItemName, szCommandLine,szWorkingDir, szIconPath, nIcon, szShortCutKey,nFlag);
