When installing programs, this error occurs:
"Warning 1909 Could not create Shortcut"
I have read dozens of sites with this same error, which all only give a work around and not a solution. The work around, and probably a clue to the issue, is to take ownership of the folder C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs/ProgramX in the middle of the install. If the program installs more than one shortcut, it will miss the first one when it gets the error, then continue. If there is only one shortcut, there will be none.
There is some kind of ownership problem with the files/folders in this location. I am seeking a permanent solution.
