Create Shortcut as Part of Installation Process (VB6)

8,834 Expert 8TB
As part of my Installation Process for a Program that I created, I would like to create a Shortcut to the Installed Executable on All Users Desktop. I modified Setup.lst, in the [Setup] Section, as indicated below, to force Installation to a Default Directory. The Application Name is predefined, and I know how to create the Shortcut via Windows Script Host. My question is where, exactly, do I place the Code to create this Shortcut? I'm assuming that I would need to insert the Code in the Load() Event of Setup1.frm, but not really sure. Thanks in advance.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. [Setup]
  2. Title=Where to put Shortcut
  3. DefaultDir=$(ProgramFiles)\Where to put Shortcut
  4. ForceUseDefDir=1
  5. AppExe=Shortcut.exe
  6. AppToUninstall=Shortcut.exe
