I'm packaging Wireshark 0.99.8 with WPS 7, and have an SystemSearch (AppSearch) to discover where the previous version is installed (Wireshark was previously called Ethereal so could have been installed under Program Files with either name).

This works as expected and the INSTALLDIR is set as a result of the AppSearch.

As part of the installation a shorcut is created on the Start Menu called "Wireshark Program Directory", which should point to the directory Wireshark is installed into. This is dependant on the AppSearch result and set in the INSTALLDIR property.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to creating a shortcut based on the INSTALLDIR?
I've tried setting the Argument and CommandLine in the shortcut to [INSTALLDIR] and %INSTALLDIR, but to no avail.
I think I'm close but just missing something.

Got it!

Had to set the Target in the Shorcut table to [INSTALLDIR], which I thought I'd tried.

The only difference was I did it through the Shorcut Table and not the Installation Expert screens.
