Windows Installer - wrongly invoked when selecting short cut on Start Menu RRS feed

  • Question

  • 1) Install my program with using Windows Installer

    2) Installer place a shortcut to my program in start menu: Eg: Program/My Company/My Prog

    3) My program can be configured to auto-start via either HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run or HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Run

    4) When the HKEY entry is removed, the next time My Prog is invoked from the shortcut on the Start Menu, the program is re-installed.

    What's happening and how do I stop it?
