  • Re: How do I put a shortcut in startup menu

    I am new to SF6 and I would like to know how to put my shortcut in to the stratup menu, and now to open a readme.txt file just before finish screen is shown.

    Thanks for any help

    Re: How do I put a shortcut in startup menu

    To create a shortcut to a file in the user's Start Menu you would do the following:

    Assuming you are installing the file that the shortcut will point to, highlight the file in your archive list, then right click it and select "File Properties." Then click the Shortcut tab. There you will find the option "Create shortcut in Start Menu." That will create a shortcut to that file in the user's Start Menu under your program.

    To open a text file, you would use the "Open Document" action found in the "Open/Close Programs" section of the actions list. You can create the action anywhere, however one option is to create it on the BEFORE actions tab of your Finished screen. You can find this tab on the screen's properties dialog.

    Hope that helps.

      Thanks Darryl
      My message was wrong. The message sholud be, I am new to SF6 and I would like to know how to put my shortcut in to the STARTUP menu, and now to open a readme.txt file just before finish screen is shown. I know how to put a shortcut in the START menu but not the STARTUP menu. I do understand where to put the script but I do not understand how to write to script like %startup % ??????? It would be great if the where some examples on the web site or in the help file.

      Thanks once again for your help.

        I'm sorry, I should have read it more clearly. OK, to create a shortcut in the Startup folder, you would use the Create Shortcut action found in the main actions list in the "Shortcut's" category. The action will look something like:

        Folder: %Startup%
        (or %StartupNT%. Check the built-in variables section for documentation on the difference between the two and others)
        Then your description and path to the file you would like it to point to. You can create that action anywhere you want such as the After Installing actions tab.

        Using the action described above you should be able accomplish what you are trying to do.
