First, I am new to this software.

We have created shortcuts and folders on the destination computers. None of that information was placed in the registry. I need InstallShield to delete the shortcut from the desktop and the folder prior to installing the new version of our code. How is this done?

Here is how to remove files and folders from the machine during your install (shortcuts are files with a .lnk extension): http://helpnet.flexerasoftware.com/installshield21helplib/installshield21helplib.htm#StartTopic=helplibrary/RemoveFileTableSprt.htm

If the shortcuts and folders were created by another MSI install you can also create your new install as a Major Upgrade: https://flexeracommunity.force.com/customer/articles/en_US/INFO/Q211822
