How to Alter Desktop Shortcuts For a Pre-Made Script in Final Build
Posted 25 November 2012 - 11:50 PM
My questions are:
1 - Can I alter the names of a desktop shortcut please?
2 - If answer to Q.1 is yes then once I have extracted all files from my PE ISO where would the desktop shortcuts be stored and how would I proceed to alter a desktop shortcut name please?
I also want to make this script / program an autostart program.
Can I alter this after the PE build please, and if so, how can I do it?
Thanks in advance if anyone can elaborate

You didn't say which project you were using, and there are different ways of doing things like this. A "shortcut" on the desktop is just a file, so it could be created ahead of time. Other projects write information into a text file that is processed when the PE is booted. A lot of that all depends on the project. So trying to patch it after the pe was created can be difficult, since it may not exist as an actual shortcut yet!
So, when talking about things, it is always best to mention the project.
BUT, as you found out, there are standard functions and Common API definitions that can be used in scripting, and there you have a lot of freedom to set things up the way you want! Then the main project scripts take care of how it is turned into an actual "shortcut"...
Again, WELCOME - and above all, HAVE FUN!!!

Im a repair technician and want to make my own boot USB with LiveXP 2012 as part of my toolbox.
I did discover after making this thread that a script can be in inspected in notepad++ and gained an idea of how the shortcuts are created in the build. I considered altering the script that I downloaded from this forum but as I played with the program in the final build I had a sneaking suspicion that the program script was badly thought out and created.
So...HAVING FUN I read as much as I could about making a script. I already had the original files for the program in question and had a shot at making a simple script with preferred shortcuts.
To my surprise it worked like a charm and perfectly in my PE. And it was much better than the original script provided here.
In fact I had so much fun Ive been thinking all day about what other scripts I can make up. Who knows maybe I will upload them here for others to enjoy
