Default How to create a shortcut in the Setup

Hi there.

I have made a little program and have created a setup program already.

The setup runs and installs fine, but I would like a shortcut to the desktop or the start menu, and I cant find the option for this.

How do i configure this ?

Thanks for you time

Right click on your deployment solution in the solution explorer and click "View" -> File System.

In the File System, click on "User's Desktop" to select it.

Right click in the corresponding listview and select "Create New Shortcut". Set the properties for it as you like.

The Start Menu is basically the same except you use "User's Programs Menu" instead of "User's Desktop".
