Default Adding programs to start menu?

Is it possible to add programs to the start menu with Visual Basic? I've been searching for how to do it for about 4 consecutive hours and I can't find anything. My eyes hurt, so if anyone knows anything, let me know. Thanks!

for WinXp:

let the program make a file in:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Menu Start\Programs

(I think )

Well, it sort of works... It adds an item to the start menu, but it's not a shortcut. *feels stupid*

Thanks for replying, yoran.

yep...
everything I know is that it must be a *.lnk-file, I don't know the content of the file, I'm sorry...

But you can copy the whole *.exe file into that dir, than it's not a link to the program but than it's the program!
