I did RTFM, and could not find anything to do what I want.
Is there a set of WIN32 programming functions that would create a file shortcut?
I’m working on a configuration utility to run at boot time, and I need to put some non-existant shortcuts into the system startup folder. THis is supposed to work automagically, so manual creation (the only way I know to do it right now) is not an option. I looked through the file functions and saw nothing; looking for explicit shortcut routines turned nothing up, either.
Once the shortcuts exist, I have a good grasp on how to use the file functions to get them where they need to be.
