making shortcuts to start MsAccess

I am making an installation program for an Access application. The
application is run on both Office 2000, 2002, 2003 and soon 2007 versions of
Office,
When I install the application I need a shortcut from the users desktop and
I need
C:\programfiles\office\office9\msaccess path\application.mdb /wrkgrp
path\lockfile.mdw
C:\programfiles\office\office10\msaccess path\application.mdb /wrkgrp
path\lockfile.mdw
C:\programfiles\office\office11\msaccess path\application.mdb /wrkgrp
path\lockfile.mdw
C:\programfiles\office\office12\msaccess path\application.mdb /wrkgrp
path\lockfile.mdw
How can I make shortcuts for each o these versions?
I know how to find msaccess on the users computer, but I don't know how to
create the shortcut (lnk)

MDB format is obsolete; you should use Access Data Projects or the new
format exclusively

I don't know how to do that programmatically. I just wanted to
tell you can ignore the response from dbahooker. He's the same
guy as aaronKempf, who's been flaming this newsgroup for a while now.
