: : I need to create a shortcut to a file whose path is determinated through the position of the program. I also need to give an icon to this shortcut.
: : What should I do?
: : Thanks for the help
: : There are 10 kind of people: those who understand binary code and those who don't understand it.
: I'm affraid you're going to have to manually create the binary file. Meaning finding the format of a shortcut and programming it.
: When you do this, you're going to be storing a string into the file. Make sure you check whether this string is Unicode (2 bytes per char) or ANSI (1 byte). I suspect the second, and VB uses the first.
: As for the current path of the executable -> App.Path
: Good luck... for the format, Google's your friend.
: Best Regards,
Are you sure there is no way to create it? I thought some installation programs can do it
edit: I think I found something here: http://www.windowsdevcenter.com/pub/a/windows/2004/04/13/VB_Shortcuts.html
However thanks for the help
