FileCreateShortcut, create shortcut, but not start on Win8

3 posts in this topic

Hi forum, I write this function to put my application's shortcut in start menu.

I have machines with WinXP, Win7 and Win8.

The script put a shortcut in WinXP and 7 very well, and start the application too...

In Win 8, the script create the shortcut, but not start the application...

I thinking this is easy, but not... i miss something?

Compile 'try_monitor.exe' or set other file...

Then run set_shortcut

Someone can help me?

Obs: I need start the application for any user... (users that already exist and yet to be created)

I thinking is the best way is All Users/StartUp, write?

try_monitor.exe

HotKeySet("{F9}", "_quit")

TraySetIcon("explorer.exe", 0)
While Sleep(100)
WEnd

Func _quit()
    Exit
EndFunc

set_shortcut

;~ Local $var = @HomeDrive & "\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"
;~ ConsoleWrite( $var & @LF)

set_shortcut("C:\try_monitor.exe", "Try_Monitor", 3)
If @error Then
    ConsoleWrite("@error->" & @error & @LF)

Hum... I found the error!

Case "WIN_8", "WIN_81"
            $SHORTCUT = @HomeDrive & "\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp\" & $sName & ".lnk"
            ConsoleWrite($SHORTCUT & @LF)

And missing

#RequireAdmin

But... not start the application on restart...

You should use %appdata% + "RoamingMicrosoftWindowsStart MenuProgramsStartup"
