Summary0028998: OCCT installer on Windows 10 creates unusable content in Start menu
DescriptionWhen installed on Windows, OCCT fills Start menu by several groups of items:
- Links to Release Notes, Overview (chm and html), Reference Manual, DRAW
- Sub-folder containing links to sample applications
- Sub-folder containing links to PDF docs

On Windows 10, this does not work any more as expected: instead of showing these items in hierarchy as they are created, it shows them in plain list, likely sorted alphabetically. This produces unusable mess.

We need to modify the installer to provide more usable content on Windows 10. I propose the following:

a) Remove link to Overview.chm -- this format is obsolete anyway
b) Instead of creating sub-menus containing links to PDFs and samples in Start menu, try creating folders with such links, and add only links to these folders to Start menu
c) If (b) is not feasible, create only links to Overview, Reference Manual, Release Notes, and DRAW launcher
Steps To ReproduceNot required
TagsNo tags attached.
