I'm currently looking at a vendor MSI. Basically the particular application is a .net app that installs a messaging/alert application. The app itself get's installed and adds an item to the Windows xp toolbar, unfortunately enabling the item is at present a manuall process. Does anybody know or have a script to enable an item in the Windows xp toolbar?

Presumably you mean the 'Quick Launch' toolbar? It's just a folder, normally %AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch, so you can copy the shortcut there.

No it's not quick launch, it adds the application item to the XP Taskbar. From within the taskbar folders you have toolbars such as "Address", "Windows Media Player", "Links", "Language Bar", "Desktop" & "Quick Launch". Effectively the app adds an item as a custom toolbar I assume.

When you do the "manual setup" run a snapshot tool to identify what it's doing. Then you can incorporate these changes in your transform

Did you think that it migth be just an executable file that was launched and appeared in XP Taskbar? Because the .Net application has a class "Notifier " which adjusts it`s behaviour . All that you need to do is just to launch executable file .
