Can I "force" web start to create a desktop entry on first download? I've seen tutorials on how to create a shortcut from the Application Cache Viewer but, really, I cannot expect, nor want, my users to have to go through this. I've also seen references in tutorials that web start "may" ask if you want to create a desktop launcher - how is this controlled? Is this feature only enabled via downloads from a web site - I'm currently testing using a local file:// based codebase - would this be the reaon I'm not seeing Web Start ask to create a shortcut?
