I have read the article on creating a shortcut to a folder in Q105374 (Installshield's Knowledge Base). I have followed those steps to create a shortcut to an empty folder that is created during the install (Advertised =No, Target=[INSTALLDIR]\Shortcuts).
The problem I have is associating an icon with the shortcut. I have tried to set the "Icon File" to a *.ico file that is installed at [INSTALLDIR]\mydir without any success. After install, I looked at the Properties for the shortcut - the icon file being used by the shortcut is not the expected *.ico file, but a *.exe generated by the installer. I have tried a number of tactics without success. I prefer not to get into Installscript since we want to make this fairly simple to maintain.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
