When installing a program folder it apears as a shortcut with icons
(like win 3.1) instead of a folder for Windows 95. (It also goes to last
place on the menu because it is seen as a shortcut and not a folder).

Please advice me how to fix my installshield program not to do this.

Thank you

Microsoft's Windows 95 Guidelines specify that the ideal situation is for
an application to have only one icon, and that this icon be placed directly
on the Windows 95 Start Menu. This option is available with Express, and
can be selected within the Specify Folders and Icons - Advanced Settings
dialog. For an application that requires more than one icon, rather than
having the Start Menu become cluttered with extensive drop-down menus and
hierarchies, Express creates a single shortcut to the application's icon
folder and places this shortcut in the Win95\Start Menu\Programs directory.

However, due to the feedback we have received on this issue, the
functionality to place an application's icon folder directly on the Windows
95 Start Menu has been included in the Express Professional Version.
