I have created an msi package with an admin install the proble I have is that the package puts an icon on the desktop which I don't want. When I have created my package if I try to edit with wise installer tailor it does not show the icon shoertcut so I cant remove it. Im pretty new to all this so any help would be great

First of all check, if there's an icon in the Shortcut table. (Simply open the .msi with Orca).
If yes, just delete the appropriate line.
If no, check to see if there's any CustomAction which installs the icons...

Good luck

There definately is an icon listed in the Shortcut table, which needs to be removed, as rpfenninger describes.

The Citrix KB article CTX108212 gives a good description of the procedure and line to drop
