View Full Version : IS Project lose Desktop shortcuts when updating executables

04-13-2015, 04:21 AM

is there any way to prevent IS from deleting shortcuts when updating executables inside an installer project?
I have an existing installer project and have created executables with the same name in different locations
e.g. old path: c:\ise_projects\program_old\test.exe
new path: c:\ise_projects\program_new\test.exe

When I now replace the executable in the installer project with the new executable and select "Yes" to replace the existing file,
all shortcuts to this executable are automatically removed from the installer project :(.

It's a pain to always note down every single shortcut property, just to recreate all shortcuts after updating the files to the new location (20-30 shortcuts).

Thanks in advance
