Why does COMMON80.WSP try to load after I install?

Question asked by MZachmann on Jun 20, 2003
If you have an existing shortcut (that you created) to GENESYS.EXE on your desktop or in your start menu, when you uninstall GENESYS that shortcut becomes invalid.

When Windows redraws the desktop it looks desperately for the first match for this no-longer-there file and it puts a placeholder there.

The first "match" it finds when you doubleclick later is Common80.wsp (the first clickable file in the subdirectory) and thus the shortcut becomes a shortcut to Common80.wsp rather than GENESYS.EXE. Just change the shortcut manually or delete it and use the new shortcuts created by the installation process.
