In Orca? Wise Package Studio? AdminStudio? Script (bad idea)?

Tried pressing F1?

You might want a shortcut to a URL, a text file or help file...to name a few.

Yes
If we create non advertised shortcut, on launching of shortcut in user application won't get heal.

It is good to keep shortcut advertised to get user data automatically heal on launch of shortcut.

But some application won't require or some vendor msi may create problem by self-healing application everytime.

i agree that this forum is becoming boring. and that nice threads are hard to find. but the problem lies in the fact that junior packager are not able to do basic researches before asking questions.

seniors here are very helpful. but they are fed up with all the simple questions that could have being answered with a google search.

also the questions where no details are present. how could we help someone that is asking why my shortcut does not work?

so, if the OP has done his searches and ask a valid question with enough details, he will have all the help he needs to fix his problem.

some vendor msi may create problem by self-healing application everytime.

Just to be clear: a self-heal will only be triggered when there is something missing that needs to be put in place.
In more detail, only when Windows Installer notices that a component's key path (be it a file or a registry key) is missing, will it trigger a repair to put it in place. In the case of user-specific components this is usually triggered by a registry key in the user's HKCU hive which, the first time the user starts the application, will not have been written yet.

As for vendor MSIs, if they don't already contain the necessary advertisements to trigger any self-heal that they need, you're free to add anything yourself in a transform, but then it's up to you to make sure everything works like you want it and repairs what and when you need it to. They won't I don't think just start self-healing by themselves, even if you were to add advertised shortcuts...

Again I repeat though, you want to add something advertised, fine, but it's up to you to get it working.

Rgds,

PJ
