Using : Windows 7 x64 bit based machine VB Express 2010
I have a number of projects referred to as Algebra Set 1, Agebra 1, Algebra 2 etc. which I want to Publish to C:\Algebra via a disk installation.
After Publishing Algebra Set1 and Algebra 1 my C:\Algebra folder shows the following :
Algebra Set 1
Algebra Set 1 is my menu program which list all the other programs and allows access to them via a Button Click code.
I have published Algebra Set 1 with a short cut on the desktop and this works fine but I cannot access say project Algebra 1 with a Button1 Click which uses
If I use Process.Start("C:\Algebra\") I obtain Windows Explorer showing the folder C:\Algebra but I cannot locate the required file to run Algebra 1.
This is not a problem with the main menu program Algebra set 1 which has a desktop shortcut installed which I can access from an installed program say Algebra 1 via a Button1 Click code :
Process.Start("C:\Users\Doug\Desktop\Algebra Set 1.appref.ms")
which runs Algebra Set 1 my main menu program.
I do not want to have Desktop shortcuts with any of my programs Algebra 1, Algebra 2 etc as although this will enable me to access them from the Menu Program via a Button Click with ("C:\Users\Doug\Desktop\Algrbra 1,2, etc .appref-ms") as I would clutter
up my desktop with shotcuts.
Using the search above the Start Button for Algebra 1 with a right-click to choose Properties I obtain the location as
which I cannot use.
This all works fine in VB Express 2008 with Private Sub Button1_Click etc.Via
Path=System.Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.StartMenu &"\Programs\Algebra 1.appref-ms
I urgently need the code to run my programs out of my main menu program Algebra Set 1 in VB 2010.
Any advise, help would be much appreciated.
