Anyone ever tried to add a desktop shortcut for all users in an unattended install? I'd like to add a shortcut to Windows Explorer.

Thanks for any input you can give.

That's very simple to do!
Put the shortcut's you want on your cd here:

$OEM$\$Docs\All Users\Desktop\
(could also be Default User... just test it)

Then it will be copied over during install.

Hope it helps!

you could also use:

%UserProfile% for current user.
%AllUsersProfile% for all users.

this can be used, say, for deleting icons:

DEL %AllUsersProfile%\Desktop\LINK.lnk

Hmm ..do I just put that in the OEM txt file. It didn't seem to work. I tried to delete the Adobe icons.
