Outlook Express fix is easy: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/products/thunderbird/

:D C'MON! You knew that one was comin!!

You can always just create a line to add it to the desktop. Your target's %userprofile%\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\

sorry I can't give you a direct answer, but why don't you just install it and drag and drop? I know that's not the point. If you're installing from SVCPACK I know you can add it to the desktop, try over add Nuhi's Forum nliteos.com

Sorry I'm lost - first you mean msimN.exe, right? So if I'm right, you are IT and you want people to have the icon there for them so they don't do a search for it - is this correct? I don't understand the reasoning for installing it if you don't use it/dont want people searching for it but could be a language thing, if you speak French I can help??

might be easier just to start over with your build. change those selections back with nlite and make a new iso
