Version 6 Windows 10 Shortcuts Missing

March, 2015

Some Windows 10 users are reporting missing shortcuts after installation of ResCarta Toolkit Version 6.  In cases reported these systems were upgraded from Windows 7 and had Version 5.1.x of the tools with shortcuts.

We are working on the Windows 10 installer to find the problem.  Till then you can download the ResCarta6Menu.zip from our Sourceforge server.  Unzip the file to a temporary location on your Windows 10 machine and then move the directory "ResCarta Tools 6.0.0" to this location on your system "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\ResCarta Tools 6.0.0"  The quotes are necessary due to the spaces in the names.

 Download 6.0.1 to remedy this problem when it arrives.

The Recipe

Second mouse click on the Start Icon to open   Command Prompt(Admin)

Then change directory to the location where you unzipped the "ResCarta Tools 6.0.0" menu and paste the following command

move "ResCarta Tools 6.0.0"  "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\"

Your shortcuts should now appear in the ALL APPS menus
