(OP)
Just found a link to (Microsoft) utility that allow to create Windows shortcut from command line.
So you could create shortcut from Basic (by "shell" command), place it anythere (including Windows desktop, Programs menu and Startup folder). It even could change the icon ;)

There found:
at "Windows 95 / DOS 7 Batch Programming"
