Creating shortcuts when deploying a project, problems.

Hi,
I want to create an option for creating shortcuts to my application
on the users desktop and Start menu in the setup. In my deployment
project i have created the necessary checkboxes, and tried to set
Conditions on the folders "User's desktop" and "User's Program Menu",
but the conditions doesnt seem to affect shortcuts, only physical
files...
Have anyone else run into these kinds of problems, or am i just
missing something obvious here? I have set the conditions on the
folders to "CHECKBOXA1=1", but still no luck. When applying the same
condition to, for example, a physical textfile in the Application
folder it works just fine.

Hi,

Lame question - is it possible to set conditions on the shortcuts
themselves? I definitely remember it were not the folders I used the
conditions for.
