The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

After converting the Deployment Wizard ISM to a MSI and adding program shortcuts to our new cross-product deploy installer, no shortcuts get created and nothing is reported in the installer logging and no errors are reported.

Why?

The Sybase wizard creates an abbreviated installer project that doesn't include the CreateShortcuts action. Open the "Custom Action and Sequences" form and insert a new Standard Action in the Installation execute list, typically after InstallFiles at sequence number 4500.

Interesting - what tool do you use to modify the MSI?
