View Full Version : Trouble with shortcut copy feature

11-25-2002, 01:26 PM
OK, i discovered a bug I believe.

If I specify a shortcut in my Program taskbar, then I right-click on it and say COPY and paste it to the desktop area, When the final install runs it creates a short cut for the desktop one but not for the Program taskbar shortcut.

Then when I go back to my IS Project, if I delete the Taskbar shortcut then view the desktop shortcut it says that the entry key is missing for it.

It seems that When I copy one shortcut to another location, they both share the same entry in the IS project so only the last placement gets installed?

The workaround I found was to create 2 brand new shortcuts of the same item, this works as in V3.5. Please get the copy feature working so it creates seperate IN entries.

Wow You are correct! Thanks for pointing that out. I created Work Order 1-BTQR8 to address this. Hopefully we'll have this fixed in a Service Pack. Thanks again!
