Adding item to desktop icon (windows)

  • I know this isn't a QT question, but thought somebody may know how I can do this. I have made a msi file using VS2008, and it installs a desktop icon. I'd like to be able to add a menu item to this desktop icon (the menu appears with a right click on the icon), and then assign a command line argument with this menu item.

    Anybody know if this is possible ? Any hints appreciated.


  • I'm not aware that programs (even under something like MS Windows) should be able to influence the context menus of softlinks to them.
    The closes you'll get is modifying the context menu for all softlink files, but that's probably not something you want to do to your users.
