Installer created by binarycreator does not add program to start menu on Windows



  • I'm trying to figure out how to create an installer using the binarycreator tool Qt provides. While I've been able to create an installer that installs the program to C:\Program Files, nothing is added to the start menu. Is there something I can to so that a shortcut is added there?

    config.xml:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <Installer>
        <Name>Goldfinch Art Tool</Name>
        <Version>1.0.0</Version>
        <Title>Goldfinch Installer</Title>
        <Publisher>kitfox.com</Publisher>
        <StartMenuDir>Goldfinch</StartMenuDir>
        <TargetDir>@ApplicationsDirX86@/Goldfinch</TargetDir>
    </Installer>
