Using 5.0.1022

Using the built-in Shortcuts creation and not selecting "Enable Access For
All Windows Users", StartMenu|Programs shortcuts are created in
CSIDL_COMMON_PROGRAMS, rather than CSIDL_PROGRAMS. Same for desktop
shortcuts.

I tested a workaround to this with the intent of creating a desktop shortcut
in the script. Unless I'm missing something, this is broken. The lookup for
Location displays a message window titled "1" before its Browse For Folder...
dialog. That dialog offers only the Features targets (i.e., Application
Folder, Program Files, etc.).

I can work around this by using GetSpecialFolder() to get CSIDL_DESKTOP into
a variable and used that variable as the Location parameter in the scripted
create shortcut.

Mark,

We cannot reproduce this :-( Not selecting "Enable Access For All Windows
Users" creates StartMenu|Programs shortcuts in CSIDL_PROGRAMS here on our
test machines.

Is it possible to send us a demo script and your uninstall .log?

Thanks,
Friedrich

Mark,

We had the "User Info" dialog enabled to test this. I think we can
reproduce this now (without using the User Info dialog). This item is in
review.

Thanks,
Friedrich
