Creating Desktop Icons Unattended?

Recommended Posts

Hi There,

I have been searching and looked through Registry Tweaks and everything. ANyone know how to add My Computer & My Network Places Icons to the desktop during Unattended install?

The only way I have done it is using TweakUI After getting into Windows. :rolleyes:

Any Help? :(

heres the answer to your question, but im sure this post is in the wrong section and this topic has been covered many of times

;Configure Desktop

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\HideDesktopIcons\NewStartPanel]"{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000

"{208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000000

"{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}"=dword:00000000

first one is my documents

second should be my networks

third should be my computer

if you want the order of my computer first also use

;Puts My Computer Icon First

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}]"SortOrderIndex"=dword:00000054

Ive inquired about this a few times already and havent come up with any method of reg tweaks to place control panel icons on the desktop... only 2 options I was able to come up with however....

1. Create the shortcut manually by dragging the Control Panel icon to desktop or right click and Sent To > Desktop. Then toss this someplace on your UACD and have it copied to your desktop as part of your installation.

2. If you goto C:\WINDOWS\system32, youll noticed a bunch of .cpl files. If you double click them youll notice that they launch control panel sections. You could always copy the appropriate file (inetcpl.cpl for Internet Options) or create a shortcut to it via batch file or the such....

If someone has figured out another method, by all means post up cause Ive been looking for one for a while now!

Hope this helps!

You wanted it, so here is a quick and easy, and IMHO very pretty way to do it.

Save the following into a .reg file:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
;Add Item to the Desktop
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{6d73666e-2e6f-7267-0666-000000000001}]

;Item Details
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6d73666e-2e6f-7267-0666-000000000001}]
"InfoTip"="Internet Options Desktop Icon - By DaCheetah"
"NeverShowExt"=""
@="Internet Options"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6d73666e-2e6f-7267-0666-000000000001}\DefaultIcon]
@="C:\\WINNT\\system32\\inetcpl.cpl,27"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6d73666e-2e6f-7267-0666-000000000001}\Shell\Open]
@="Open Internet &Options Control Panel"
"SuppressionPolicy"=dword:4000003c

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6d73666e-2e6f-7267-0666-000000000001}\Shell\Open\Command]
@="rundll32.exe shell32,Control_RunDLL inetcpl.cpl"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6d73666e-2e6f-7267-0666-000000000001}\ShellFolder]
"Attributes"=hex:00,00,00,00

And run it.

Tada! :thumbup

To uninstall, do the same thing with this:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
;Remove Item from the Desktop
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{6d73666e-2e6f-7267-0666-000000000001}]

;Remove Item Details
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{6d73666e-2e6f-7267-0666-000000000001}]

Glad to have helped.

Just for the record, the CSLID key I chose starts with "6d73666e-2e6f-7267" which (dashes removed) is Hex for "msfn.org". ;)
