I am creating a new application shortcut for an existing installed application. I have a msi & mst file in which only applicaiton.exe is available for which i want to create shortcut and i m recreating a mst file to add the new shortcut. Now i want to remove the older shortcut from that application when i apply the mst.

Is there any way around this?

kinda odd creating a msi just for a shortcut... You could create a patch for the msi (it app was originally an msi).

but if you need to do it the way described...

You can use RemoveFile table to remove the old shortcut.
