Problem:

I would like to remove shortcut created by DIA (Departmental Installed Application)


Symptoms:

The DIA created by FPC (FlexApp Packaging Console) is creating an invalid shortcut. Also the shorcut could be valid but unecessary and only adds to cluter the desktop.

 

Possible Resolution(s):

There is no current DIA package editing software and the steps have to be performed manually.
For example we will delete a "vSphere" shortcut created by DIA package.
 
Steps:
  1. Deactivate the package by pressing the "stop" button.
  2. Open Disk Management (any machine) Action>Attach VHD Example: Computer Management_2013-06-05_01-56-11.jpg
  3. Point to VHD which was just created by installing DIA application. (In this example vSphere)D2013-01-30UTC22-46-19-359-VMware-viclient.jpg
  4. Open the disk and browse to location of the shortcut Note: Depending on software it may vary.
  5. Delete "VMware vSphere Client" shortcut (visible above)Note: This only works one way (delete). Creating a new shortcut in that location will not create a shortcut on user's destktop.
  6. Detatch from the VHD

Next time when the the application is deployed it should not create the shortcut on user's desktop.
