Help with creating shortcut


Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me with my script. I tring to create a short cut that looks like this.

"C:\Program Files\Avant Browser\avant.exe" -install

Every command I try write the shortcut like this.

"C:\Program Files\Avant Browser\avant.exe -install"

Is this even possible with AutoIt?

Here is the commands I tring to use.

$name = @ProgramFilesDir & "\Avant Browser\avant.exe"

$place = $name & ' -install'

FileCreateShortcut(@DesktopDir & $place, @ProgramsCommonDir & "\Avant Browser.lnk")

Excuse me, but I really want to know

How can I use relative path and file name to create shortcut?

I'v put the script file and the exe file in same folder.

link files donot have relative paths

Or they use environment variables or real absolute paths

Sometimes you can enter a relative path but windows just changes it to a absolute path when saving.

From what I know real relative paths are not possible in link files (shortcuts)

Its not a batch file.

Now I've found that I can use @ScriptDir MACRO to get the directory and use & to make the absolute path. Thanks anyway.
