I was using 1.2 to repackage an old terminal program installer, and part of that requires me to place files under the All Users profile >> Start Menu >> Programs >> TerminalApp. The repackager did not use the proper path to the directory, but incorrectly identified the Start Menu as a new Directory parent entry that points to TARGETDIR (which resolves to C:). I was able to use InstED to modify the faulty entries, but in doing so, I also noticed it also created an ALLUSERPROFILE entry and USERPROFILE entry that had a parent dir of TARGETDIR (C:). It would seem that the repackager is unable to determine when certain special locations are being used, and is creating new and faulty Directory entries.

Please fix this bug, and I'll be a happy repackager!

I'll be even happier if you don't require a Shortcut entry. I never use it, and have to manually edit out that part as well. I understand why the feature is there, but it's not always appropriate.

Thanks for a great tool!
