Subject: [wix-users] Windows 10 uninstall of shortcuts failing


We are finding that the installer we built with Windows Installer (WiX) does not uninstall its shortcuts on Windows 10. The uninstall works on Windows 7 perfectly fine. We had to make changes when Windows 8/8.1 came out for shortcuts to work.

Has Microsoft changed what needs to be done for shortcuts on Windows 10?
If they have does anyone have a solution?

Has anyone found any other issues with installers on Windows 10?
