stopping desktop and shortcut Icons?

4 posts in this topic

I have a simple program to install spybot 1.4 but the only thing is it installs a desktop and shortcut Icons. Is there a command line command that will stop this? I have tried the /noicons but it that is not what I need. If not, then how do I delete them after they have been created?

run ('spybotsd14.exe /nocancel /silent /components="main"')
#NoTrayIcon
winclose ("spybot_v1_4");closes starting directory

RUN . . . Slide . . . TAG . . . Your out . . . PAINTBALL !!!

/NOICONS

Instructs Setup to initially check the Don't create a Start Menu folder check box on the Select Start Menu Folder wizard page.

So, using the /NOICONS switch will disallow icons in the start menu. (unless the author disabled that wizard page)

Use this function for the Desktop icon (change 'shortcutname' to the correct name)

; function call
_Desktop('shortcutname.lnk')

Func _Desktop($shortcut)
    ; Delete a Desktop shortcut.
    If FileExists(@DesktopDir & '\' & $shortcut) Then
        Return FileDelete(@DesktopDir & '\' & $shortcut)
    ElseIf FileExists(@DesktopCommonDir & '\' & $shortcut) Then
        Return FileDelete(@DesktopCommonDir & '\' & $shortcut)
    EndIf
EndFunc

Edit:

More info on wizard

I tried that and it had no Icons in the programs menu, but it still left the desktop and shortcut Icons. I would like the opposite to happen.

I will add that function to the script. Thanks.

Many times these programs will stick icons in the "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop\" folder. Just put in your AutoIT script to delete these shortcuts at the end of the program.
