Greetings,

I am pretty new to packaging. Here is my senario.

We are creating a base XP image with no apps. All apps will be installed via Altiris.

I am turning all the legacy apps into MSI's and creating MST's for all existing MSI's.

I want a shorcut for each app to be install for EACH user (existing and new) in the Quick Launch toolbar.

I am using Wise Package Studio Pro. I have tried several times with various methods, but have not had success.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Gary[:D]

They go in...

C:\Documents and Settings\[UserName]\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch

In Wise, the profile stuff is laid out a bit differently in the true file structure. Documents and Settings stuff needs to start out here in the Wise File Window...

Destination Computer / Windows / Profiles

Everything in the Profiles directory goes into the Current User profile, except for All Users. All Users directory is, you guessed it, the All Users profile. I know, it's a bit strange but that's the way it is.

SO...

Put your shortcut in

Destination Computer / Windows / Profiles / Application Data / Microsoft / Internet Explorer / Quick Launch

(or "Destination Computer / Windows / Profiles / All Users / Application Data / Microsoft / Internet Explorer / Quick Launch" if you'd rather have it in the All Users profile)

Thanks for the reply. I tried creating the All Users/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Quick Launch folder and put a shortcut in it but the shortcut did not appear in the QLauch for the user. Does the OS recognize the All Users/Microsoft/Internet Explorer/Quick Launch folder?

You may need to restart Internet Explorer before you see them. ..and I don't mean browser windows. I mean the Internet Explorer session that's running your Start Bar.

The All Users portion did not work. I am trying it in Default User, and that is not working either.

Default User works when I created the full path in Wise (Docu&Settings etc..)

BUT, that will leave dead icons for new profiles created. I would prefer to user All Users......Quick Launch, but it appears the OS does not support it. [:'(]

Shortcuts for Quick Launch can only be added for user and not All Users
