VB 6.0 "package and deployment wizard" query..

When a package designed and developed in VB 6.0 using "Package and development wizard", and when u install the "setup.exe", there's no shortcut icon that gets created on desktop.

So how do you go about creating a shortcut icon when the exe is intalled on a PC...

Please help!!

Thanks!!

The 'Package and Deployment Wizard', unmodified, cannot make desktop icons. Here is a link that shows you how to modify the setup1.exe to enable creating desktop icons.

using this software you can create the package and you can customize your setup with this.

Hi Twinkle2003,

I ditched the vb6 p & d wizard a gem of a program called "ISTool".  You can download it free from

http://www.istool.org/default.aspx/index

It can be tricky to start with but it took me less than 20 mins to nut it out.  You can import the file list from your vb p & d wizard too.
