I need to just drop a custom icon on the desktop that points to a web link. This really is a desktop shortcut that is associated to a web link.

Nothing fancy, but I have questions on the best way to do it. I can’t see scripting an entire MSI package to do this.

You could put it all in a URL file

Create a file with an extension of .URL and populate with something resembling the following.




Works well as will launch the default browser on a machine whereas some other methods pass the URL as a parameter to a specific browser .exe.

I tried your suggestion, but for some reason I can't get it to associate with a custom icon.

Is there a better way to package this? Anyone??
