When I use the setup wizard, how do I get an Icon on the desktop when I run

Thanks in advance,

Don't you mean, "How do I ASK the user if he WANTS an icon placed on the
desktop?"

Hi,

In the solution explorer right click on the setup project name.
Select view File system. Right click on File system on target machine and
select add special folder users desktop. Place a short cut to your app in
the folder.

Keith,
Ken shows how to create the short cut.

You need to use the Setup UI designer & a CheckBox dialog to ask if they
want the short cut.

Then you can use the Condition property on the folder itself to include the
short or not.

What I do not see is a way to include 1 of 2 short cuts on the desktop...
Although all or nothing makes sense...

Hope this helps
