The shortcut was created by IS Express 3.03 does not show the application file (exe file) with path in Target field. In its properties page, the target field is disabled (in gray) with nothing in it. You still can launch the application by click the shotcut but sometime it will launch the Window Installer instead. Why?

This is because all versions of Express 3.x prior to 3.54 by default create something called "Advertised shortucts". These are a special kind of shortcut that repairs the setup if anything has been changed, deleted or coprrupted. In Express 3.54 we allow you to create three types of shortcuts. One of them is the standard shortcut you are used to.
