    No Icons for shortcuts to .BAT files

    I have created a setup wich creates some shortcuts to .BAT files. The Shortcuts work great but they don't have the symbol I have given them.

    The just have thise standard dos symbol (this empty window with title bar).

    What can I do to fix this problem?

    Thank You

    You could include a resource DLL and then point the shortcut to an icon index within that dll.

    But when I use an included .EXE file as resource or even an .ICO file this icon will not be shown in the Startmenu.

    Why?

    Thank You
