Issue



My installation is creating shortcut paths like:

"C:\Program Files\SRCeng\UNWISE.EXE" /W2 "C:\Program Files\SRCeng\INSTALL.LOG"

Instead of:

"C:\Program Files\SRCeng\MyApp.EXE"

Solution



The target of the shortcut is incorrectly set to unwise.exe which supports self-repair functionality available in Wise Installation System Professional.

Workaround:

Open the .WSE file in a text editor such as Notepad. Manually remove the line of script reading 'Flags=01000000' from the Create Shortcut script action code blocks.
