My goal is for a person to click on a web site link that will put three desktop shortcuts on the user's computer. I also want to include .ico files with each of these .url files. How can I do this?
I've always been a web developer so this my first time trying to deploy an 'app' to a user's computer. I really don't know where to start so any help is appreciated.
Update: I created an .msi with basically 6 files (3 .url files and 3 .ico files) in the project. I then 'added a shortcut' to the three .urls on the 'User's Desktop' and associated the .icos to those shortcuts. The installer work but does the icons do not
show up for the shortcuts. Any ideas?
I have not found a public document show us a way can do this, all are the absolute path.
I think you can create an application to use the Process.Start method start the IE with your url string as the parameter, instead of a common shortcut, since one application can embed the icon as its resource, it can use your customize icon after you installed/deployed
your product to the end users computers.
