[Solved] Filecreateshortcut problem

Recommended Posts


can you help me?

why can not I create my shortcut on the desktop?

my target is not just

$UserName = "Home"
$File = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Google Chrome", "DisplayIcon")
$WorkingDir = RegRead("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Google Chrome", "InstallLocation")
$LinkFileName = @DesktopDir &"\" &$UserName &".lnk"
$Icon = "C:\Documents and Settings\Laddy\Desktop\1290536699_Chrome.ico"
$Description = "Shortcut Profil User"

I think i have a problem with :

$File and $ WorkingDir because there are no quotes in the path

How do you do ?

Thanks a lot for your reply

Syntax of your FileCreateShortcut() might be the issue...your $Description is where the "args" argument should go, then the $icon is where the $Description is. So try something like this (specify no additional args by using two quotes)...

FileCreateShortcut($File,$LinkFileName,$WorkingDir, "" ,$Description,$icon)

Hope that helps!

Add: Check and double check $File because it appears if that's not valid, then the link won't get created at all.
