How do I get a setup project to place a shortcut on the desktop, etc.

P: n/a
I am trying to get the output from a setup project to place an entry on the
menu plus a shortcut on the option, but setting the property's in User's
Desktop and User's Programs Meny to true doesn't seem to do the trick.

Am I missing something?

You can try creating a shortcut by right-clicking on the target application
within the setup project. Then just move that item to the desktop folder in
your project.

I seem to recall that the setup wizard use to give the option of prompting
the user to place the shortcut on the desktop and menu.
