View Full Version : Shortuts to exe

02-11-2004, 02:20 PM
In InstallShield, I told it to place a shortcut on the desktop and a shortcut in the Start Menu. These 2 shortcuts check that the program is still intact - meaning every file and folder that was initially installed is still there. Why does it do this? It seems like it puts entries into the windows registry that checks to make sure everything is there. When I installed an app on a workstation, I had a temp file in there. Now that the temp file has been deleted, the created shortcuts wants to reinstall the program. Is there a way to stop this from happening?
