I've made a quite progress now, but am unable to create a file with shell's scriptable objects.
I know how to create a new folder.
and I can create a new shortcut if I have one previously done which I can point to...
I'll continue searching, but this is all I have this far:
code:
$Shell=createobject("Shell.application")
$NameSpace=$Shell.namespace("C:\Documents and Settings\niemjo\KiXforms\test.kix.lnk")
$Link=$NameSpace.self.getlink
$Link.description="testi linkki"
$Link.Path="C:\Documents and Settings\niemjo\KiXforms\test.kix"
$Link.workingdirectory="c:\"
$Link.save()

anyone any success on this?

heh, this is fun.
I got pretty far with deletion and modification of shortcuts.
as example, to show the type of file, just do:
code:
$path="%windir%"
$explorer=createobject("shell.application")
$folder=$explorer.namespace($path)
$items=$explorer.namespace($path).items
for each $item in $items
? $folder.getdetailsof($item,2)
next

still no luck with the creation.
the parsename-method promised to create but it was no go.

Thought this one was kinda neat:

$Shell = CreateObject("Shell.application")
$Shell.BrowseForFolder(0,"Title",0)

Sorry about that - was just surfn MSDN on some of these ShellLink methods your working on and happened to see that there - couldn't resist. Somebodys probably already turned this into a UDF anyways ...

all these things I saw in udf's were made with scripting host.

Hmm. This has been a tricky one. I was able to create a shortcut. It creates the shortcut in the same directory as the shortcut target, so it'll have to be renamed/moved/... afterwards.

code:
$objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
$objFolderItem = $objShell.NameSpace("C:\Documents and Settings\Chris\Desktop\kixforms.zip").Self
$objFolderItem.InvokeVerb("Create &Shortcut")

I cracked the object for 20 hours this week and could not get it!
invokeverbs, tricky! but, will work with that then. it's better than nothing.

yep...
can actually invoke the create shortcut wizard:
shell "rundll32.exe appwiz.cpl,NewLinkHere $LinkDest"

but, can't create the shortcut...
the invokeverbs is bad as I would need to somehow know the name for create shortcut.
could not find anything even close in the reg.

as mine is "luo pikakuvake", would need to find a way for this...

I was thinking that you could parse through the folder and find all .lnk's then look at the create date.

yep, but not that far yet.
found a solution for the invokeverb thingie...
to retrieve the correct verb, I did:
code:
for each $verb in $Folderitem
if instr(join(split($verb,"&"),""),readvalue("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile",""))
$verb
endif
next

Oh, well there is this method as well...

code:
$objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
$objFolderItem = $objShell.NameSpace("C:\Documents and Settings\Chris\Desktop\kixforms.zip").Self
;$objFolderItem.InvokeVerb("Create &Shortcut")

$Verbs = $objFolderItem.Verbs
For Each $Verb in $Verbs
$Verb ?
Next

I scimmed it [Wink] , but didn't see you creating the collection. So, I assumed you was pulling the verb from somewhere else. I figured it out, but you had already called me out. [Roll Eyes]

there is something still screwed up as it does not invoke the correct one, but the default.
code:
for each $verb in $LinkDest.verbs
if instr(join(split($verb,"&"),""),readvalue("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile",""))
$LinkDest.invokeverb($verb)
; $LinkDest.doit()
endif

the default being "Avaa" or in english open...

chris,
have you got it to working with enumerated verb?
I made it this far and it looks ok, can you try it out as can't get it to invoke anything else than default:
code:
for each $verb in $LinkDest.verbs
?
if instr(join(split($verb,"&"),""),readvalue("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile",""))
"here is the correct verb:>" $verb "<"
$LinkDest.invokeverb($verb)
else
"not correct:>" $verb "<"
endif
next

Sorry, been mucho busy with actual work work today. I guess since they pay my bills, I should pay them a little attention once in a while. [Wink]

sure, if you think there is much to it [Wink]
I see it as irrelevant but here is my whole script file:
code:
$shell=createobject("shell.application")
$LinkDest=$shell.namespace("C:\Documents and Settings\Lurenko\desktop\tester.kix").self

for each $verb in $LinkDest.verbs
?
if instr(join(split($verb,"&"),""),readvalue("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile",""))
"here is the correct verb:>" $verb "<"
$LinkDest.invokeverb($verb)
else
"not correct:>" $verb "<"
endif
next

get $

Got it! The $verb is a vartype=9, so the invokeverb command doesn't know what to do with an object. Therefore, try...

code:
$objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
$objFolderItem = $objShell.NameSpace("C:\Documents and Settings\ShiltCK\Desktop\carbgramcounter.pdf").Self
$Verbs = $objFolderItem.Verbs
For Each $Verb in $Verbs
if instr($verb,readvalue("HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile",""))
$objFolderItem.invokeverb($verb.name)
endif
Next

get $x
