procedure CreateShortcut(FileName: string; MenuFolder: string);
var
 AnObj: IUnknown;
 ShLink: IShellLink;
 PFile: IPersistFile;
 WFileName: WideString;
begin
 AnObj := CreateComObject(CLSID_ShellLink);
 ShLink := AnObj as IShellLink;
 PFile := AnObj as IPersistFile;
//Shelllink target
 ShLink.SetPath(PChar( FileName));
//ShowCommand
ShLink.SetShowCmd(SW_SHOWNORMAL);

//Working Dir
WorkingDirectory := ExtractFilePath( ProgramFile );
ShLink.SetWorkingDirectory(PChar( WorkingDirectory ));
// Save
 WFileName := MenuFolder+'\'+ChangeFileExt(extractFileName(LinkFile),'.lnk');
 PFile.Save(PWChar(WFileName), False);

procedure CreateShortCut(ShortCut, Application, Parameters, WorkDir:
string; SW_State: Integer; IconFile: string; IconIndex: Byte);
var
  SCObject: IUnknown;
  SCSLink: IShellLink;
  SCPFile: IPersistFile;
  WFName: WideString;
begin
  SCObject := CreateComObject(CLSID_ShellLink);
  SCSLink := SCObject as IShellLink;
  SCPFile := SCObject as IPersistFile;
  SCSLink.SetPath(PChar(Application));
  SCSLink.SetArguments(PChar(Parameters));
  SCSLink.SetWorkingDirectory(PChar(WorkDir));
  SCSLink.SetShowCmd(SW_State);
  SCSLink.SetIconLocation(PChar(IconFile), IconIndex);
  WFName := ShortCut;
  SCPFile.Save(PWChar(WFName), False);
end;


For example:

CreateShortCut(ShortCut, Application, Parameters, WorkDir: string; SW_State: Integer; IconFile: string; IconIndex: Byte);
