    Package & Deploy (VB 6.0 / W98)

    The Package & Deploy add-in in VB 6 works great. However, is there some way to automatically generate a desktop shortcut to the program during the install process? I can't figure out how this is done.

    If I remember correctly, that's one of the annoying lacks that drives most of us to use a third party installer.

    I found that I could get the icon file loaded, but darned if it would let me load the actual shortcut (the .lnk file in WindowsDesktop). I don't know why, as it seems it would be such a simple thing to do.
