VS 2008 Pro -- Setup Project -- how do you create shortcuts that point to the installed application?

I have tied -- when right-clicking on :: User's Program Files -- Create shortcut to Program files or add...  choosing the create shortcut to program files does just that -- opens a folder, BUT, would prepare to simply run the installed application instead.

how do I configure this please (using this setup project)

Hello amillyard,

If you want to create a shortcut on the deskop, choose User's Desktop at the left.
In the right part, right click and choose "Create new Shortcut"
Then choose you Application Folder - Primary Output ...
