lnkpath: The path to a shortcut file to create. If the file extension ".lnk" is not included, it will be appended automatically

volume: The volume that the lnk file will be created on (currently, only LNK_VOLUME_LOCAL is valid).

   lnk = CreateShortcut("My Shortcut", LNK_VOLUME_LOCAL, LNK_VOLUME_TYPE_FIXED)
       lnk.lDescription = "Here's my test shortcut!!!"
       lnk.lTargetPath = CurrentDir + "\testlnk.exe"
       lnk.lRelativePath = ".\testlnk.exe"
