Creating program groups and icons from VC++
Posted on 1999-01-05
I'm working on an uninstall program for Windows NT 4.0 that can roll back to previous versions with all of the saved settings restored. Everything works correctly except for one thing and that is creating program groups and icons. I am looking for either a class that encapsulates this functionality, or a good WORKING example of how to do this. All of the examples I've found are in either VB, Pascal, or don't work! I do know that you can either use DDE (which I'm not sure how to use) or create the directories then use IShellLink to create the icons. I can't get either of these methods to work.
PS: I'm using Visual C++ 5.0
