You can create shortcut by using a vbs script or Shortcut.exe.

Try the easy way:

Make a folder called $Progs inside of $OEM$ dir and put your applications there (each of them inside a folder, like in Program Files when are installed.)

Create $OEM$\$$\system32 and copy Shortcut.exe file from link provided in my previous post inside.

Add the commands to create shortcuts for your applications in Unattended->RunOnce section of nLite.

Examples:

shortcut.exe /f:"%userprofile%\Desktop\NetMeter.lnk" /a:c /t:"%programfiles%\NetMeter\NetMeter.exe" /w:"%programfiles%\NetMeter" /r:1

shortcut.exe /f:"%userprofile%\Start Menu\NetMeter.lnk" /a:c /t:"%programfiles%\NetMeter\NetMeter.exe" /w:"%programfiles%\NetMeter" /r:1

shortcut.exe /f:"%userprofile%\Start Menu\Programs\NetMeter.lnk" /a:c /t:"%programfiles%\NetMeter\NetMeter.exe" /w:"%programfiles%\NetMeter" /r:1

shortcut.exe /f:"%allusersprofile%\Desktop\NetMeter.lnk" /a:c /t:"%programfiles%\NetMeter\NetMeter.exe" /w:"%programfiles%\NetMeter" /r:1

shortcut.exe /f:"%allusersprofile%\Start Menu\NetMeter.lnk" /a:c /t:"%programfiles%\NetMeter\NetMeter.exe" /w:"%programfiles%\NetMeter" /r:1

shortcut.exe /f:"%allusersprofile%\Start Menu\Programs\NetMeter.lnk" /a:c /t:"%programfiles%\NetMeter\NetMeter.exe" /w:"%programfiles%\NetMeter" /r:1

shortcut.exe /f:"%appdata%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\NetMeter.lnk" /a:c /t:"%programfiles%\NetMeter\NetMeter.exe" /w:"%programfiles%\NetMeter" /r:1
