My basic MSI project creates a shortcut in the user desktop.
In case an administrator-user runs the installation the shortcut is created in the 'Public' user profile desktop folder which leads to displaying the shortcut for all the users of the computer. 
Does anyone know how can I make sure the shortcut is being created on the desktop only for the specific user that runs the installation (even an administrator user)?
Thank you,

See the discussion of ALLUSERS and the concept of "installation context" in my answer to your other post: http://forum.install...showtopic=21702
