    Re: How I can change path of the default shortcut folder?

    Hi,
    There is no built in way to do this, although there is a workaround that is quite simple. The first thing to do is go SETTINGS -> VARIABLES -> REGISTRY VARIABLES tab, and add a new REGISTRY VARIABLE. Make your registry variable look like this:
    Name: %SCFolderPath%
    Default Value: %StartMenuNT%\GAMES
    Main Key: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
    Sub Key: ........................
    So what this will do is set %SCFolderPath% to its default value (%StartMenuNT%\GAMES) because the Sub Key (........................) will never exist on any system. Now simply remove the SHORCUT FOLDER screen from your installation in the SCREEN MANAGER and your shortcut folder will be created in the base of the START MENU instead of START MENU -> PROGRAM FILES. I have tested this on WIN 2000 and WIN 95 and it worked perfectly on both OS's.

    mark.
