      Maybe you should read some documentation, it is very well possible within the powers of AMS... I just think admin privileges are required to be able to do this
      Code:
      local dir = Shell.GetFolder(SHF_STARTMENUPROGRAMS);
      if(dir ~= "")then
      	local target = dir.."\\".."MyProgramName\\";
      	if(not Folder.DoesExist(target))then
      		Folder.Create(target);
      	end
      	
      	Shell.CreateShortcut(target, "Start MyProgram", _SourceFolder.."\\autorun.exe");
      end

        Problem with shortcuts is that windows 8 has 3 places to pin/place a short cut

          He asked specifically for the start menu, Windows 8 does not have a start menu, but simply that weird block interface Also, when IMXLH installs on Windows 8, the shortcut is properly added and visible in the metro interface.

            Ya I don't understand Windows 8's shortcut stuff lol the start menu folders and stuff are still in place and same with the reg so I not sure if the overlay piggy backs off that or not
