Description Petr Kremensky 2014-07-15 10:04:02 UTC
Created attachment 918108 [details]

Description of problem:
 A new set of shortcuts is created with everytime program group name validation fails creating extra set of shortcuts.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 EAP 6.3.0.ER9

How reproducible:
 Always (Windows)

Steps to Reproduce:
 1. Start the gui installer.
 2. Go to shortcuts creation screen.
 3a. Set program group name to JBoss\Platform -> Next -> OK (Error dialogue)
 3b. Set program group name to JBoss\Platf -> Next -> OK (Error dialogue)
 3c. Set program group name to JBoss -> Finish the installation

Actual results:
 Shortcuts are created also for locations which didn't pass the validation (21 shortcuts)

Expected results:
 Shortcuts are created only for locations which pass the validation (7 shortcuts).

Additional info:
 - We should reconsider allowing the '\' for shortcuts path on windows (See bz1088900) as the helping panel for creating shortcuts on windows is adding the '\' character (See attachment).
 - All shortcuts are deleted during uninstallation.
