While cretaing shortcut file how to set dos path (short path) in "Start in" of the shortcut file using MSI installer (VS2005 setup project)
While creating MSI Installer by using VS2005 (setup Project), I have created shortcut of my installed application in program menu but while checking the properties of shortcut file in the "start in" absolute path is appeared.
When the application installed path (Installation Path) is very long around 240 then application cannot be opened by using shortcut.
By setting the DOS path (short path) in "Start in" of shortcut, application can be opened correctly from shortcut file.
While creating MSI Installer, please suggest how to set DOS Path (Short path) instead of absolute path in "Start in" of the shortcut file, therefore in case of very long installation path application can be opened from shortcut file.
