How copy file to desktop of user ?

Recommended Posts

guys,

I tried several searches but didn't find what I was looking for.

I remember reading somewhere something about pre-formatted (window)paths to copy to but I don't find it anymore on this site.

What do I want ?

I want that the user of my program got the choise of putting a shortcut to his desktop and / or to the startmenu of Windows

I searched also in Windows Explorer but the problem is that after the map C:\Documents and Settings\ the name of the user is used so there must be another way to copy the shortcut to the right location.

thanks for any support

You might be looking for macros, like @UserName, @DesktopDir, and @ProgramsDir. Check them out in the help file.
