Okay, i need help with another one i can't figure out what went wrong.
Made a simple start with the shortcut testing and used a simple 2 item xml.
The first item, a shortcut to explorer in my start menu went just fine! But the second one, for Nero, gave me a wierd shortcut :blink:

The shortcut on my desktop give's as target:
"C:\Program Files\Ahead\Nero\nero.exe" \w"
I really don't know how to make the " /w a forward slash!!
Say forwards slahs, but i get a backwards slash...

And is there a way to make the shortcut icon appear as the "real" Nero Xpress icon? I get a default one now.

My code:
</config>
<items>
<item display="Moving, copying and deleting test files">

   <fileio-shortcut display="Adding menu start Shortcut" desc="Adds shortcut to Windows explorer" configs="Testing">
   <link>#ALLUSERSPROFILE#\Start Menu\Windows Explorer.lnk</link>
   <target>#SYSTEMROOT#\explorer.exe</target>
   <description>Displays the files and folders on your computer.</description>
   <workdir>#SYSTEMROOT#\</workdir>
   </fileio-shortcut>


   <fileio-shortcut display="Adding Desktop Shortcut" desc="Adds shortcut to Nero Express" configs="Testing">
   <link>#ALLUSERSPROFILE#\Desktop\Nero Express.lnk</link>
   <target>#SYSTEMDRIVE#\Program Files\Ahead\Nero\nero.exe" /w</target>
   <description>The easiest and quickest way to burn all your audio, data, and video discs, and much more.</description>
   <workdir>#ProgramFiles#\Ahead\Nero\</workdir>
   </fileio-shortcut>

</item>	
</items>

There's an <arguments> tag for <fileio-shortcut>, check the docs for the syntax, but I'm sure you'll be able to extrapolate what the correct syntax is :-)

As for the icon, that functionality isn't built in - post it on the bugtracker as a request and I'll see what I can do.

Thnx!
But i feel stupid that that i looked over that. :whistle:
Am at work now, but i'm going to read all about it tonight.


As for the icon thing, This only happens with the Nero Xpress icon.
Then it's not a problem for me.

Thnx again. :thumbup

That did the trick!!
<arguments> /w</arguments>
added that line and voila, there it is.

For the complete one:
<fileio-shortcut display="Adding Desktop Shortcut" desc="Adds shortcut to Nero Express" configs="Testing">
<link>#ALLUSERSPROFILE#\Desktop\Nero Express.lnk</link>
<target>#SYSTEMDRIVE#\Program Files\Ahead\Nero\nero.exe</target>
<arguments> /w</arguments>
<description>The easiest and quickest way to burn all your audio, data, and video discs, and much more.</description>
<workdir>#ProgramFiles#\Ahead\Nero\</workdir>
</fileio-shortcut>

Now on to the complete list i had in v1.12.. :wacko:
