I have the following problem with Installshield express 4

suppose that i have a shorctut on Startup that points to
MyApp1.exe now if i install myApp2 on with the same Shortcut
name but points to MyApp2 then the shortcut will no be
changed
how to force shortcuts to be overwritten ?

Thank you

What I would suggest doing is creating a new shortcut in the new installation. It is possible that by having the same shortcut in both projects that this is causing the problem. Here is what I would do: in the new project delete the original shortcut, then create a new shortcut and point to the new executable. This should take care of the problem.
