Shortcuts are implemented through an OLE interface called IShellLink. There isn't a direct API to do this, strange as it sounds. (MS has written such an API, fCreateShellLink, and included it as a utility in the Visual Basic package, but you have to have STKIT432.DLL  so it's not a general solution)

MS has a Knowledge Base article that gives an example of creating a link and then modifying the icon. It is Q179904, at

Hope this helps, good luck!
