Hello People,

I'm having some trouble when installing an application.

The installshield doesn't create a folder in the start menu,
it creates a link to a folder in the directory where is just
installed my application... ?

Am i doing something wrong ?

any help would be appreciated.


Thankx Mories...

Dear InstallShield Staff,
I know that InstallShield Express have a function to create folder on
the startup menu, but it seens that the folder is a shortcut(.lnk), not
a menu folder(etc. XingMpeg Folder), how can I create such folder like
that? Thank you.
Yours Sincerely,
Jack Cheung.
