Default Desktop Shortcut points to Setup


Hi,

This happens about 70% of the time: I am using VS2008 setup project. I place a shortcut in the desktop pane pointing to primary output of the project I want to deploy. When the setup project runs on a new host machine, the shortcut on the desktop that is installed causes the setup project to be executed in lieu of the distributed application. I must then go to the windows explorer, select the program from the program files, and do a 'send to' the desktop. Then it works correctly. If we uninstall and reinstall the app it runs correctly from then on. As I said, this does not happen all the time. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Jim
