Description

Name: nt126004			Date: 09/10/2001


java version "1.3.1"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3.1-b24)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.3.1-b24, mixed mode)

Why are end users not asked on a first run if they want shortcuts ?

We have tested this on 100 users and from a System Interative Design
perspective we hit bottom.

Most users do not understand the concept of what it means for an
application to be web centric. They are only interrested in starting and using
their application.

All users tested asked "where is my shortcut ?" after the program had been
downloaded and cached. They all think that the application is installed.

Therefore it would be very nice to have, and a lot less time consuming to ask
the end user on a first run if they would like a short cut.

This could be a tag which could be as follows
<resources os="Windows" shortcuts = "first">
<resources>
