> Windows > [Solved] How to create a directory in folder 'start Menu'
I have written a program to download my newest creation, its working for most people who have tested it but !, my problem is as follows:
On some computers (I think only Vista) my Prog wont create a folder in the 'start menu' as in some OS' the 'start menu' is a hidden folder.
I need to create a program / start menu short cut to my App.
And before you ask, yes I have UAC manifest for admin access.
<requestedExecutionLevel level="requireAdministrator" uiAccess="false"/>
My question is: what is the best most failsafe way to create a folder in the 'start menu' and im wondering if the SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR has something to do with it ?
I really need some help !!!

Creating a Start Menu folder for the local user should not require Administrator privileges.
You should leave the SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR as NULL to let the new folder inherit the parent's security.
Please share out the actual piece of code where you attempt to create the folder.
