I created a WiseScript to put shortcuts in Desktop and StartMenu. The Wse runs good and do its job as it should be.However, I want to use the msi to launch this script...I did try but the msi does not seem to create the shortcuts unless I did add them manually using the Shortcuts page in the Windows Installer Editor

Can Anyone Help please

Thanks

Peace

Its always better to create shortcuts using the shortcut page on the Installer Editor as you can associate the shortcut to the components for better reapir\healing options.

if you are running the WSE, go the MSI script tab and then add a new action of type "Run WiseScript from installation" and make sure you give the appropriate sequencing\conditions so that the script gets executed

I would also like to know why you want to create shortcuts in a wise-script, and then use msi to install the script. What are you doing in the script that you can't do in msi?

I have to agree here....why use shortcuts generated by a Wisescript when you can make the shortcuts in your msi and use the full functionality of the Windows Installer service to advertise them and also prompt for any self repair etc.
