Hi all,

trying to remove shortcut from msi package.  in the properties i see INSTALL_SHORTCUT True so in command line i put INSTALL_SHORTCUT=False and INSTALL_SHORTCUT="False"  both didnt work.  I also try to create a transform and entered False in the table, no dice.  any ideas?

is the shortcut created with a custom action (very bad) or with the normal shortcut table?

1. If it's a custom action, remove it (via the transform)
2. If it's created in the shortcut table, remove it (via transform)
