Shortcut issue with Custom setup installer


I am able to create shortcuts (in Start Programs) for applications(features) bundled in MSI installer for typical setup type. But I am facing problem with custom setup type. Shotcuts are not getting created when only few features are selected. So please let me know what are the steps need to follow in Custom setup to solve this problem.
Please note: I am using Install shield 12.0

With thanks,

Every shortcut is tied to a component. So ensure that the component belongs to one of the features being installed during the custom installation. Or create a hidden and required feature and associate the shortcut component to it, so that the shortcut always gets created.

I hope this helps.
