How to set up shortcuts with the Installer Maker Plugin for Runtime Revolution?

A few days ago, Economy-x-Talk’s support department received a question about creating shortcuts with the Installer Maker Plugin for Runtime Revolution. More specifically, a user of the plug-in asked how to set up the installer as to create shortcuts in the start menu and on the desktop. Here’s the answer.

To add shortcuts to the Start menu on Windows, follow the following steps after you have added all necessary files:
1) go to the Special section
2) select the Start Menu tab button on the Special section
3) drag any file (e.g. the main executable file) from the list on the left into the list on the right

If you want to have a shortcut on the desktop, follow the following steps.
1) go to the Special section
2) select the Aliases tab on the Special section
3) drag a file (e.g. the main executable) from the list on the left into the top field on the right
4) make sure that the file in the top field is selected (hilighted)
5) now choose Desktop from the option menu button in the middle of the window, next to the Set button
6) you can leave the field below the option menu button empty and press the Set button

With these settings the installer will create shortcuts inside a folder in the Start menu as well as on the desktop.
