I have an exe that is shared between several products using a merge module. The component that the exe is part of also includes a shortcut to the exe on the start menu.

For the next release we want to move this shortcut to a different location on the start menu. If only one product which consumes the merge module is installed, after the upgrade, only the new shortcut exists. (This is the behaviour we desire.) If more than one product is installed, even after upgrading them all, the both the old and the new shortcut exist.

Is this expected behaviour? Is there some way to trigger removal of the old shortcut?
