Here is a sample of shortcut file created by MS Access 97:
[Shortcut Properties] AccessShortcutVersion=1 DatabaseName=Company.mde ObjectName=fgetCompany ObjectType=Form Computer=MyComputer DatabasePath=C:\MyDir\MyApp.mde EnableRemote=0 CreationTime= 1bd0c569308f340 Icon=263
Attached you can find a function which
generates such shortcut files for
given database object. (Hopefully if works).
The questions are:
- Where can I find specification of the structure of such shortcuts?
- Where can I find specification of .lnk shortcut files?
- Where can I find API32 declarations for functions used to create .lnk shortcuts, folders on destop, file
type associations etc...
My purpose is to write a set of VBA functions which create folders on desktop and put
shortcuts in it. I have ODE97 and InstallShield5 but I prefer (plan) to use MS Access 97 only to
setup my app's folder(s) and shortcuts.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
