Hello,

I'm running MS Logo certification tool on our installed application. I'm getting an error regrading shortcuts. shortcuts are created and can be accessed from the start menu. Below are the out put for MS Logo certification tool. Please advice how can we overcome this issue. If any further information is required please let me know.

Test case: Multi User session test: PASS WITH WARNINGS WARNING: Application invocation in multiple sessions did not pass. Application fails due to no shortcuts. IMPACT IF NOT FIXED: Multiple windows users might not be able to launch the application seamlessly in concurrent sessions. HOW TO FIX: : The application must not block launching multiple instances of the application across concurrent sessions both locally or remotely. Applications must not depend on global mutexes or other named-objects to check or block multiple instances. If multiple instances per user need to be blocked, then per-user or per-session namespaces must be used for mutexes or other named-objects.

Test case: Multi User Check Logs: PASS WITH WARNINGS WARNING: The application did not install any shortcuts. IMPACT IF NOT FIXED: Windows users might not be able to run the application seamlessly in concurrent sessions. HOW TO FIX: : The application must support running multiple instances of the application across concurrent sessions both locally or remotely. The application should not require administrative privileges during runtime. Moreover, data and settings must not be shared across users or stored at a location that is shared across users. User data must be isolated to the users profile.

Thank You, Ronen

It seems that the application shortcuts were created in current user's start menu, not common start menu. This may be the case if installer was not run by administrator or <installationScope> was set to user. To make sure the installation is done for all users, please set the following in the project:

<project> <installationScope>allusers</installationScope> <requestedExecutionLevel>requireAdministrator</requestedExecutionLevel> </project>

Also, can you send your full project XML to support@bitrock.com co we can have a closer look at how the application shortcuts are created?
