The past couple of days, I've needed a way to create a shortcut on a user's desktop during the login process. I had a way that worked for most shortcuts, but I just could not figure out how to do this one.

We've been discussing how to use OpenVPN with Python in the last two articles. In this final post, I'll show how to bring it all together into a GUI with some wxPython code. I'm also going to discuss some important snippets.
