Installers can't create shortcuts

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by BuzzLightyear, Mar 18, 2008.

  1. I have Vista Ultimate 32 bit, and when I run installers (of every program)
    they fail to create shortcuts.
    Sometimes I get "CoCreateInstance failed; code 0x80040154" errors, sometimes
    "Interface Not Registered", sometimes "Could not create shortcuts".

    If I create them manually it works correctly.

    I already tried system restore, system file check, instructions I found here:

    http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;217648&x=13&y=12

    but nothing changed.

    Why does this happen? Is it a bug or is there something wrong with the
    registry?
