Can get icon to install on desktop after download

 »desktop icon
John Isaac Jones Hi:
 First let me say that I LOVE the program. It's an incredible product for what it sets out to do.
 While I have caught on to perhaps 85-95 per cent of the features, I'm still at a loss with some of them.
 I have compiled my ebook and placed it on my website. The problem is: once I download, it just sits on the hard drive. To launch it, I have to find the .exe file and click it to open the ebook.
 How do I recompile the ebook so that, once downloaded, it places an icon on the desktop for easy access?
 I know that the first time I compiled the program and ran it, it asked if I wanted to install an icon on my desktop. And it did!
 How do I recompile to ebook to get the icon to install on the desktop?
 I am using Activ ebook Ver. 4.22.

swiftdeal Hi John

Sorry, only just seen this. When you have you project open, go to Edit >> Icon. In the Installation Option, choose Desktop. That should create the option to install the icon on the desktop when someone opens it.

To be honest, most people know where they've put their ebook once downloaded.
