Can anyone tell me how to add a SHORTCUT to the users desktop when they install the app. ??

ive added a setup program to my solution then added the primary output. then created a shortcut of that and dragged it into the Users Desktop folder and Programs Menu folder in the File System tab of the Setup..

Now when i publish the solution and install it, no icon appears. ???

Placing a shortcut anywhere is a job for the installer program - which one are you using?
I know there was a problem with InstallShield 11 where it would create shortcuts without icons. I was only able to fix it by upgrading.
