Unity 3D – Add A Short Cut To Desktop C# – Hack Method

Having to create a short cut to the desktop for an app seems easy if you do it manually, most of the programmatic ways I have so far found on the internet involve referring to a COM Library/Component to facilitate this, any how here is a slightly hacky version that seems to work for me found on a forum which I have adapted to take data from unity etc

Warning! This method relies upon writing and executing a visual basic script to create the short cut, security measures on some machines may not allow this so be warned.
