How do I use CreateShellLink api to create a shorcut in the startup folder (so program will start at system boot) using vb6 mainly on XP (but other os's would be nice if they are different)


Thanks,
Cheers!

If you can pack your application into an installer using some commerical product, it will be easy task for you to create the shortcuts in Windows.

For example, you can looking for Inno Setup to create an installer, including creating the shortcuts you want.
