I use winrar and make a sfx archive and add this to comments Path=.\%programfiles%\MyProgram SavePath Silent=1 Overwrite=2 Shortcut=P, MyEXE, DestFolder, "Description", "ShortcutName" Shortcut=<DestType>,<SrcName>,<DestFolder>,<Description>,<ShortcutName> Create a shortcut to unpacked file. DestType is one character wide field, which can have the following values: D Create a shortcut on Desktop S Create a shortcut in Start Menu P Create a shortcut in Start Menu/Programs T Create a shortcut in Startup folder SrcName is a name of archived file. DestFolder is a folder to create a shortcut in. If it does not exist, it will be created by SFX archive. Description is a text string describing a shortcut. ShortcutName is a name of .lnk (shortcut) file created by SFX.
