In the Rshell.ini file, the button action that creates a desktop shortcut to a file or folder in the CD seems useless. This key lets you create a desktop shortcut when the user clicks a button in a shell dialog. The desktop shortcut can point to a file or directory on the CD. Here's the syntax: button1_cmdline=desktop,file or directory name,shortcut name,icon file When the end-user clicks the shell button, the desktop shortcut gets created on their desktop. However, clicking the button doesn't also automatically cause the shortcut to launch. The user must do that separately. This seems like a useless key, especially since the shortcut can't point to anything that's installed on the user's hard disk. Brent can't recall a situation when anyone would want to implement this. Brent and I suggest that this key gets removed from the rshell.ini file unless there's a reason to keep it.

Summary: Rshell.ini file: Remove button action to create a desktop shortcut → Rshell.ini file: Remove button action to create a desktop shortcut
When you double-click on the desktop icon, what happens? Did you test putting a file name such as c:\foo\bar.exe into one of these button command lines?
When you double-click the desktop icon, the file/directory associated with the shortcut launches. What seems odd about this flag is that clicking a shell button can create the desktop shortcut to something on the CD, but it doesn't also launch it. So the button would have to have text that says something like "Click this button to create a desktop shortcut for blah on the CD", which seems not very useful. Also, every time the user double-clicks the shortcut and they don't have their Communicator CD inserted, won't they get an error message?

Deleted button1_cmdline from both the rshell.ini files.
Reopening this.... The only key and it's comments to be removed was the button1_cmdline=desktop only. You removed the button1_cmdline=.exe instead. The CCK Autorun Shell's rshell.ini should have button1_cmdline=[path to .exe to launch the CCK XPI Installer from the shell UI button 1], and the CustomCD Autorun shell's rshell.ini should contain button1_cmdline=[path to .exe that launches custom build's XPI Installer from the shell UI button 1] These two files have yet to be determined.
