Shortcut to application in "Send To" menu

Hi everybody!
I'm trying to create package with App-V Sequencer 4.6 on WinServer2008 R2 x64, my application has shortcut in "Send To" menu.
Sequencer catching this shortcut, and creates OSD with SHORTCUT LOCATION="%CSIDL_SENDTO%".
But when I install this app-v package on client PC, there is no any shortcut in "Send To" menu :(
(when I changing location to "Desktop" or some other location - everything's Ok)
I even tryed to set SHORTCUT LOCATION="%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo", but it did not help too... :((
Can anybody help me?

Can you tell us for what OS you are creating teh package for?
Just make sure you are editing the XML file properly.

I'm creating package for WinServer2008 R2 x64
I've viewed App-V client log, and didn't find any errors... ((
if I set logging level "warnings" - there are no any records in log after installing package...
if i set "verbose" - I see these records, which belong to shortcut creation:

[11/04/2010 11:38:43:896 SWAP VRB] {hap=6:app=MyApp}
PublishShortcut(target=%CSIDL_SENDTO%, name=MyApp, icon=C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Application Virtualization Client\MSIUtility\{6998FC22-58C8-4BDA-AB20-43D0ECC30A73}\PACKAGE\./flam01g.412 Icons/MyApp.ico, params=)

[11/04/2010 11:38:43:896 FILE VRB] {tid=DF4}
GetCachedIcon(file=C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Application Virtualization Client\MSIUtility\{6998FC22-58C8-4BDA-AB20-43D0ECC30A73}\PACKAGE\./flam01g.412 Icons/MyApp.ico, user=0xFFFFFFFD)

[11/04/2010 11:38:43:896 FILE VRB] {tid=DF4}
GetCachedIcon() got user id 0xfffffffd

[11/04/2010 11:38:43:896 SWAP VRB] {hap=6:app=MyApp}
Got all the publish info, creating shortcut

[11/04/2010 11:38:43:896 FILE VRB] {hap=6:app=MyApp}
Add(app=MyApp, global=TRUE, location=%CSIDL_SENDTO%\MyApp.lnk)

[11/04/2010 11:38:43:912 FILE VRB] {tid=DF4}
Created/updated shortcut at '%CSIDL_SENDTO%\MyApp.lnk'

[11/04/2010 11:38:43:912 FILE VRB] {tid=DF4}
The shortcut was added to list

But there is no shortcut in menu after installing package, and no shortcut in location "%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo"
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
