I tried yesterday to use a Setup project for a very simple installer to set up something very simple: merely a set of html files in Program Files with a desktop shortcut pointing at homepage.htm in the application folder. Is this possible? Try as i might, i couldn't get the shortcut working at all. When i checked the path in the resulting shortcut, it was as follows:

"C:\Program Files\Mtx\Writing\"homepage.htm

which didn't work of course. Is this possible?

If so, i'll need a step-by-step to get that shortcut right

Hi,
"C:\Program Files\Mtx\Writing\"homepage.htm cannot work because of the " between \ and h
"C:\Program Files\Mtx\Writing\homepage.htm" should work
