Basically you need to create a link to your program.

The link should be created into the following directory:

(System Drive):\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop

You can do this in any language, C, VBasic, Pascal, even a DOS batch file.

1) Retrieve the installation path of your program + the name
of the executable.

2) Call the windows API to create a shortcut.

3) Here is a link to a solution in Delphi Pascal, which is my
favorite development tool:

http://www.delphifaq.com/faq/delphi/windows_file_system/
f410.shtml

4) Once you get the Delphi program to program to work,
you can simply call it from Wise, at the end of the
installation ...

or

you can call Wise from the Delphi program before creating
the link.

Hope this gets you started, unfortunately it is a little technical.

I followed partricias solution but still my imaging studion will not load


Teifion Thomas:

If you did the complete install of the software, then the program is there, you just don't have a shortcut icon on your desktop. You'll have to click on "start" then find the folder that contains your imaging studio software executable file (when you double click on that icon, imaging studio comes up on the screen). resize the window so that you can see part of your desktop behind the current window, left click on the executable file icon and drag it to the desktop and release the mouse button. Click on create shortcut and you'll have an icon for your imaging studio on your desktop.

CD html presentation-hyperlinks don't work with other pc's


To create an Autorun-enabled CD-ROM, proceed as follows:
  • Create an Autorun.inf File
    Autorun.inf is a text file that is located in the root folder of your application CD-ROM. It provides to the computer the name and the location of the startup program for your application that is installed when the CD-ROM is inserted. The Autorun.inf file can also contain optional information including the following:
  • The name of a file that contains an icon that represents your application's CD-ROM drive. This icon appears in Windows Explorer instead of the standard drive icon.
  • Additional commands for the shortcut menu that appears when the user right-clicks the CD-ROM icon. You can also specify the default command that runs when the user double-clicks the icon. Autorun.inf files are similar to .ini files.
  • The [autorun] section contains the default Autorun commands. All Autorun.inf files must have an [autorun] section.
  • icon: Specifies the path and the file name of an application-specific icon for the CD-ROM drive.
  • open: Specifies the path and the file name of the startup application.

Autorun.infThe following is an example of a simple Autorun.inf file. It specifies Filename.exe as the startup application. The second icon represents the CD-ROM drive instead of the standard drive icon.
[autorun]
open=Filename.exe
icon=Filename.ico

My laptop acer aspire5920 is not shutting down due to removal of my shutdown file from my laptop due to unknown reasons.


Hi dear,
Create Icons for Shutdown and Reboot If you find it annoying to access the Start Menu for shutting down or rebooting the computer, create a shutdown and reboot icon for the desktop.
Desktop Shutdown Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -s -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
Desktop Reboot Icon Right click on the desktop
Click [New] [Shortcut] to open the Create Shortcut Wizard
Type [shutdown -r -t 00] without the brackets.
Click [Next] and type a descriptive name of your choosing for the shortcut
Click [Finish]
Add a bit of class to the shortcut by assigning it a custom icon. Right click the shortcut, click [Properties] and select the [Shortcut] tab. Click [Change Icon] and select from the icons that are displayed.
A Final Note: If you happen to be as fanatical as I am about having nothing on the desktop, drag the new icons into the Quick Launch area of the Taskbar.


then use it.

if not resolve it

then use following step ;-


click on start then go to RUN and type SFC /SCANNOW
press enter
this command recover all windows lost files, if it will ask windows CD then enter the windows disk.

bye take care
good luck

How do I reconfigure microsoft office standard edition 2003?


Try repairing your office installation. To do that you will go to your control panel and select Add Remove Programs. Find your Microsoft Office 2003 and click on it like you would remove it. There you should be able to select repair instead of remove. This will repair the installation and should fix your problem.
