Im wondering if there is any way I can create a shortcut through mIRC. I copied mIRC.exe to the desktop, but that just opens a new mIRC and puts the support folders and files on the desktop.

Id need to make the shortcut and make the target for it the $mircdirmIRC.exe. Anyway I can do this?

Right-click on the exe > send to > desktop (create shortcut) ?

Did you type //echo -a $mircdirmirc.exe?

Or something like

alias mircexe { return C:\mIRC.exe }

(Whatever folder it is).

I don't understand what this will accomplish. I want to ask the user if they want to place a shortcut on the desktop. If they say yes, Id like a shortcut to $mircdirmIRC.exe placed on their desktop.

I used the copy command to copy the .exe file but it doesn't act as a shortcut since it is the actual mIRC.exe. It instead becomes an independent mIRC.

Hey that worked! After monkeying around with it for a while ... Only drawback is that my AV software tries to stop it. Guess I will just have to prompt the user with a message saying to allow it.
