From the help (icons section) in the manual…you get:

Name: "{userdesktop}\Rides (Reservations)";
FileName: “{app}\your program name”
WorkingDir: "{app}"

So…workingdir is what you need….

Also, you likely should use “common” desktop if you want this to appear for all users…

So…

{commondesktop}

Would likely be preferable to

{userdesktop}
