Summary0005392: Windows Start menu shortcuts are invisible to limited users.
Description* Log in as a limited user (i.e. a regular user (not administrator), for security purposes)
* Download windows installer
* Find installer in Downloads folder
* Right-click installer, select "Run as..."
* Select an administrator account (for access to C:\Program Files\*)
* Install OCaml

-> OCaml shortcut folder is not visible in the Start menu.

The installer puts shortcuts in the administrator's start menu instead of the start menu for all users. This doesn't make sense for users who use limited accounts to avoid internet security problems.

Can you tell me which installer you used?

Probably the one that was current on 30 Oct 2011. I deleted the installer, but that's the modification date of my OCaml Start-menu links.

The latest version of the installer fixes this issue, as far as I could tell (Windows XP, tested using a limited user, then right-click, run as, administrator). [^]

Please let me know if it doesn't work as expected.
