This one from joshua is a good tip to follow:
But the most advanced reading I've found withouth XPE comes from zuluDC
Wich also shows how to further tweak the explorer shell to get much better results, this dates from 2003 and at this time all changes to already made hives had to be done and exported manually..
But I'm still not sure on how to make this possible, just wanted to post a topic to know if anyone had more experience dealing with this and could perhaps give some help.
This snippet uses XPE to add entries:
;add to Start Menu\Programs 0x2,"Sherpya\XPEinit\Programs","Test Program","%SystemDrive%\Programs\TestProgram.exe" ;add as icon 0x2,"Sherpya\XPEinit\Desktop","IconName","drive:\path\to\program.ext"
Isn't there any other way of doing this?
