View Full Version : Why does Quick Patch mess up shortcuts?

I create version 1.0 of product. It installs, works fine, and has shortcuts in Start Menu and Desktop.

Then, I create a QuickPatch. It installs fine. The new exe file also works fine when double clicked in its explorer folder. BUT THE SHORTCUTS on THE START MENU AND DESKTOP NO LONGER WORK. The error message is "The parameter is incorrect".

Seems wierd since the QuickPatch Wizard has no dialogs for changing the shortcuts. I assume the update.exe inherits the shortcuts for the original version.

I have been over this several times but cannot find out why the shortcuts have been messed up.

Has anyone had a similar experience with QuickPatch?

Thanks,

Ari :confused:
