Using the Adobe CS4 Deployment Toolkit I created the AdobeUberInstaller.exe & xml file to install these two.

I added the following to the xml file to put shortcuts where I want them. (Windows 7 64bit - XML file needed it twice)

<Property name="StartMenuSubFolder">C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Adobe\Design Standard CS4</Property>

This works on all shortcuts except for Acrobat Pro & Acrobat Distiller.

They still show up in

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Adobe Design Standard CS4

Yes - can move them via cmd file or vb script - I would rather the installer do it correctly.
I have though of removing Acrobat from install & then doing it as separate package, but the license keys would not be the same.

Does anybody know what XML file controls there location.

When I package Acrobat as Stand alone I just use the Customization Wizard to put them were I want them

Is there anywhere in the xml that you can specify a transform for the other installs?

Nope - there is no way to I can find to make it use a Transform.

I check all the xml files that came with it & none look like what I needed.

I'm tempted to remove Acrobat from Main install & add it back via the Standalone Acrobat installer. But that would through the license off,
