 Creating shortcuts (*.lnk) to another folder


Using VB 6.0 on NT4.0

Is it possible to programatically create shortcut files (*.lnk) within
VB6.0 to another folder on the filesystem; i.e. I want something similar
to the MkDir function but for shortcuts; ideally passing the name of the
shortcut file and its mapped folder as parameters.

e.g. I have a folder C:\FOLDER1 and I want to create a shortcut,
C:\SHORTCUT.LNK which when referenced picks up all the objects in

I've searched the archives, but can only find references to
"fCreateShellLink Lin SKIT432.DLL" for earlier versions.

Thank you
