Desktop short cut / program name under add or remove programs

Hello All,

The following 2 scenarios are working fine with Install Shield 2010 (in my project creating the shortcuts with InstallScript)

1) "admintool shortcut icon is getting created on the desktop".
2) The program name (JavaServer) is getting created under Control Panel >> Programs >> Programs and Features >> JavaServer

But the above 2 scenarios are not working as expected in the Install Shield 2014 version.

After migration in IS2014 can you please let me know usually which properties do I need to double check whether they are having correct values or not (to make these scenarios are working).

- In IDE General Information >> Add or Remove Programs section
- IN IDE which property is responsible for getting short cut key on the desktop
- General Information >> Software Identification Tag >> Use Software Identification Tag (Yes / No) ?


Thank you.

Hello All

In IS2014 version : In batch script (step2.bat) setup.exe is calling in silent mode by passing install_server.iss file but I am getting result code as either -5 or -3.

In IS2010 version : Its working fine and getting result code as 0.

Scenario 1: ( install_server.iss and setup.exe exists in the same directory ) ========

setup.exe /s /f1"./install_server.iss" /f2".\adm_inst_icon.log" C:\Test\

[InstallShield Silent]
Version=v7.00
File=Log File
[ResponseResult]
ResultCode=-5

Scenario 2: ( Next time I tried by giving absolute path for install_server.iss file and getting result code as -3)

setup.exe /s /f1"C:\Sample\install_server.iss" /f2".\adm_inst_icon.log" C:\Test\

[InstallShield Silent]
Version=v7.00
File=Log File
[ResponseResult]
ResultCode=-3

Please let me know your inputs how to resolve these error codes and to make it work with IS 2014.

Thanks
