Ok...a little open source piece of software called NUnit is giving me more issues that automating Office installs...

If you step through the install manually, it works just fine. We're changing no defaults, so we throw a /qb after it....it installs the program, but........no shortcuts (desktop or start menu). Try other switches, same result. Build a transform to step through, same result.

The more I look at it, it looks like the shortcuts don't get added to the desktop or start menu until the actual final screen comes up where you click 'finish'. This is where I think the switches are cutting off the install.

Anyone have any ideas of what to look for in the actual MSI script itself? I'm good with tweaking a lot of little things in the MSI, but not so much with the actual script unless i'm adding something. I'm hoping I might be able to rearrange the icon creation a step earlier.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Sounds like the shortcuts are added by a custom action from the UI sequence (InstallUISequence table) which will not be executed during basic mode
