[SOLVED] snipping tool & sticky notes shortcut missing

on Wed 23 Jul 2014 - 20:25
hey winter,

i realized that after using winreducer (i dont exactly know what component is causing it), the shortcuts at Start are missing.

The *.exe files are still all present at system32, and when i start them everything works.

EDIT: both programs dont work !

EDIT2: never mind the first edit. both programs work only shortcuts are missing !!!

i got it:

EXPERT - WinSXS Folder Cleanup

is causing it.

I checked it and winreducer just removed files from windows\winsxs but still the shortcut disappear


both shortcuts are normally stored here:

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

tested it again. and just to mention it.

starting both exe files from system32 is working. only the shortcuts are missing after using ONLY EXPERT - WinSXS Folder Cleanup (install.wim) from an clean/untouched iso

just to get it at the right topic too:

hey winter, i maybe found somthing interesting about the problem with snipping tool and sticky notes.
when i install from an untouched iso those 2 shortcuts are at

C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories

but when i check the .wim file at 

ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Accessories

those shortcuts are missing.

i would say that during installation or after they are created by a batch or registry


EDIT: and something breakes that when using the expert option

that fixed the problem:

after moving them to the manifest folder and installing my iso (with expert - winsxs folder option) the shortcuts are present and working Wink
