Default Creating a menu automatically

i wrote a nice application for draw11+12, everything is fine, also a Setup-File with Inno Setup (wich is really recommendable).
But i don't reach it to get a personal menu entry. In Draw11 when i use the method Application.ImportWorkspace within then GlobalDocument_Start() event Draw breaks down and even i have to reinstall it.
What is the best method to get a personal Menu-Entry, or a personal Toolbar automatically (this could be either during installation by copying Workspacefiles and setting registry keys or some code in the GlobalDocument_Start() event.

Thanks for any help

Default Re: Creating a menu automatically


I would say, go for the setup time installation. Copy the workspace files and set the current workspace into HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Corel\CorelDRAW\12.0\CorelDRAW > LastWorkspaceUsed key.

Also I think that in CorelDRAW 12 the Start event should work correctly (in previous versions it was invoked too early and not all engines were initialized at the time). In CorelDRAW 12 you can also go through CommandBars collection and create new toolbar, and add a VBA macro button to it programmatically (however you still cannot specify a custom icon for it).
