To all,
Does anyone know a way how to create a shortcut on a desktop using VB6, I have an application that creates various Excel spreadsheets and puts them into a specified directory.  What I then want to do is give the user an option of creating a shortcut to this Excel sheet onto their desktop.
Sample code etc will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for all your help on this.
