bug? Start Menu icons RRS feed

  • Question


    I have Vista x64, works great EXCEPT Recent Shortcuts on Start Menu.

    Any Windows Installer shortcuts there do not work. Clicking them simply does nothing.


    If I navigate to the same application through All Programs / Application / Shortcut, then it works fine.


    In addition, standard shortcuts (non-Windows Installer ones) in the Recent list work fine.


    There seems to be a bug with the Recent items in the Start Menu.

    I am not alone on this, suspect it occurs also with x32 Vista, however have not found a solution online.



    Any ideas?

  • It would seem that this is a known issue (google it), and there is no solution from Microsoft as at July 2007.

    It may have to do with the latest version of Windows Installer that is in Vista.
