Why Do My Shortcuts Disappear When I Build an Installer?

Issue Details

I am trying to build an executable and an installer. I want to create a shortcut for the executable on the desktop of the computer I am deploying to. I created a shortcut and saved it. Later the shortcut disappears.

Solution

Rebuilding the project and creating new installers and shortcuts solves the issue.

Additional Information

The problem may come from making changes in the project after already building the executable, installer, and shortcuts.
