I have run through the recipe build process and pick my icon and shortcuts only to have the program (PowerDVD) install correctly on the second machine and run BUT there are no shortcut on desktop or menu items in the "All programs." I have tried this several times with no luck. I have run out of ideas and I think this is something probably hid in plain sight.

Thanks,

It seems that it was in plain sight. I am able to select from the "create shortcut" menu the different shortcuts I need and get them to appear on the desktop and in the program menu but not in a common program file (PowerDVD). I have verified that the folders are created in All User >> Start Menu >> Programs >> PowerDVD but when the msi is created and tested there is no common folder for the shortcuts I have created.

Any ideas?

I was able to add a folder setting in the "Directory" section of the .msi file through InstEd and that seemed to clear it up. Kinda of a backdoor solution but it is done and seems to work.
