Installbuilder installs the Linux desktop shortcut below, but not the Windows shortcut. I've tried every variation of escaping the characters (spaces, ™, etc.). I also tried file:// and file:/// Nothing works. The <startMenuShortcutList> link also does not work.

On 64-bit Windows XP if you go into Control Panel and Remove a program it also removes the "..\All Users\Desktop" folder if the program's shortcuts are the only shortcuts in that folder. When re-installing the program if the "..\All Users\Desktop" folder doesn't exist the Desktop icons will not be installed (i.e. when using the Wise Installer and perhaps other older installers).
On 64-bit Windows Vista and Windows 7 the "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users" folder no-longer exists. The new folder name is "C:\Users\Public", and therefore once again the Wise Installer and perhaps other old installers are not installing the Desktop shortcuts where they're supposed to be located.
