Here is what I did..copy and paste your line of code...project name: Birthdays
Project exe: Birthdays.exe

Result:  No Icon Appears On Desktop

Also...I got no mention of dcom95 but maybe that is because I am running 98 on my system..

I don't have VB6... Just VB5... ;-)

The OSfCreateShellLink I gave you was for VB5.  I believe that the arguments have changed in VB6... Search the SETUP1 project and look for the OSfCreateShellLink definition...
