    That's our particular set - Office 2010, SIMS and Journal along with IE and the Desktop. {7C5A40EF-A0FB-4BFC-874A-C0F2E0B9FA8E} represents "Program Files (x86)".

    And here are the results I get from it:
    With Remove Common Programs..Without-RCP.png

    And without Remove Common Programs..With-RCP.png

    Internet Explorer doesn't seem to appear on both, but the desktop does when I disable Remove Common Programs...

    Any ideas?

    What happens if you copy Desktop.lnk from %ProgramData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs to %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs and then create the XML file?

    desktop is a file that needs copying to wherever youve redirected your start menu

    Sorted now! Thanks @Arthur and @sted - Seems like all of the shortcuts don't have the {7C5A40EF-A0FB-4BFC-874A-C0F2E0B9FA8E} in-front have to be in the same folder its redirected to..

    Thanks again!
