How to pin the bootstraper to taskbar and/or start menu?

Time:November 30

I have a clickonce online only project here installed and run on a share.
the problem here I have is that people feed back it's so inconvenient to start. they want it to pin to the taskbar and start menu. but i think it can do it.
I am using c#, .net 4.5.1, visual studio 2013. clients run on windows server 2008 / 2012, windows 7 or up.
I did search but nothing was found. I created a shortcut to the bootstraper so that clients can go and copy it to whatever folder, but this shortcut couldn't pin to anyone of these.
wondering if a script will help.
about this application, it has to run online, since it's extremely important to keep this software up to date.

Hi HuStmpHrrr,
>>I did search but nothing was found. I created a shortcut to the bootstraper so that clients can go and copy it to whatever folder, but this shortcut couldn't pin to anyone of these.
I made a research and it seemed that only the shortcut which was from the local HDD could be pinned to the task par.
>>wondering if a script will help.
In my option, I think you could run a clickonce application from another program. For the script, the link below shows the details.
