Start Menu entries not being created
I've recently installed a few games and while the installation is successful
(including an Uninstall entry under Programs & Features) no Start Menu
shortcuts are being created. Can anyone help?

I managed to get Supreme Commander to create the shortcuts by running Setup
in WinXPSP2 compatibility mode. Unfortunately, this trick does not work with
C&C3.

I am running an OEM version of Vista Home Premium. I'm not installing
anything else until I know for certain what is causing this and how I can
prevent it from happening again. Can anyone help me please?
