  • Are there any errors in the event logs?

    Did the installation of the application complete successfully? Were there any install logs generated? If so does it show any errors?

  • Hi,


    Please clarify your current concerns. Does the application install correctly? Did you change the installation directory or use the default path like C:\Program Files? Can you find the file under the installation path? If so, you can create shortcut for the program manually.


    Please show hidden folders first, for only current logged on user, create shortcut as you want in the following path:


    C:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs


    For Start Menu shared by All Users, refer to:


    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
