Ok. I have updated it yet again. Serge: it should, please give it a try and let me know. I have only tested it on XP Pro. Still trying to work out bugs.

Version 2.0

Commands:
One - Add one shortcut
List - Add multi shortcuts
Remove - Remove a shortcut
RemoveGroup - Remove an empty group

hi chris,

bad news i'm afraid

when i run the following code

Code:
#include c:\windows\desktop\shortcut.dsu

List create,1

list add,1,@windir()\explorer.exe C:",Explorer C"
list add,1,@windir()\explorer.exe D:",Explorer D"
list add,1,@windir()\explorer.exe E:",Explorer E"
list add,1,@windir()\explorer.exe F:",Explorer F"
list add,1,@windir()\explorer.exe R:",Explorer R"

Shortcut list,Test,1

stop


i get 2 error messages:

1. stopped at line 91 in file shortcut.dsu

2. operation invalid when no dialog showing at line 11 (the SHORTCUT LIST, TEST,1 line)

sorry about that...it certainly sounds like a promising and useful dsu

does it work also for desktops and quickbars? just asking...

serge

Stopped at line 16.

Create shortcut still works, remove shortcut is a NO-GO.

I think I stick to your instructions but perhaps you could mail me your test script to rule out any problems there:

Remove part still does not work.

There does need to be a dialog created for One and List to work. Here is my example code. I thought I would post it here Dr Dread so others could try it.

Code:

#Include Shortcut.dsu

DIALOG CREATE,New Dialog,-1,0,240,160

List create,1
list add,1,@windir()\explorer.exe C:",Explorer C"
list add,1,@windir()\explorer.exe D:",Explorer D"
list add,1,@windir()\explorer.exe E:",Explorer E"
list add,1,@windir()\explorer.exe F:",Explorer F"
list add,1,@windir()\explorer.exe R:",Explorer R"
Shortcut list,Test,1

Info The previous shortcuts should have been created in the Test group.

Shortcut Remove,Test,Explorer C
Shortcut Remove,Test,Explorer D
Shortcut Remove,Test,Explorer E
Shortcut Remove,Test,Explorer F
Shortcut Remove,Test,Explorer R

Info The shortcuts should have been removed.

Shortcut removegroup,Test

Info The group Test should have been removed.

stop

Same effect.

Creation works - removal doesn't.

Damn. Well, All the remove command is:

Code:

%2 = Group
%3 = LinkName
File delete,@windir(Start Menu)\Programs\%2\%3".lnk"


Try this. It if doesn't work, then it's not my DSU. It's something on your end in deleteing files.

Ahaaa. A couple of problems with that:

Firstly, you cannot hardcode folder names and expect them to work in foreign Win versions. So in that
case
Code:
File delete,@windir(Programs)\%2\%3".lnk"

would make more sense.

Secondly, there's a diff between Current User and All Users. Your DSU creates links
in my All Users tree, should they should be removed from there also...

Ok. I found out how to fix it. No Prob. I am in the process of it now, and it does not use File delete, or Directory delete any more that way it should delete the right shortcuts.

Ok. I think I have got everything worked out now. Version 3.0 has new syntax and the code has been completely rewritten. Give it a try.
