Issue ID




Installing one version on top of another ends up with Start Menu shortcuts to both versions pointing to the same install



How to reproduce:
1. Install Unity 5.3.4, install Unity 5.3.5 over the top
2. Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu and find Unity 5.3.5 folder
3. Open Unity shortcut
4. Notice that Unity 5.3.5 opens
5. Find Unity 5.3.4 folder
6. Open Unity shortcut
7. Notice that also Unity 5.3.5 opens

More of an issue for Win 7 users because no-one looks at the Start Menu folder in Win 8 and above.

    Yes this is madness. I have 5 shortcuts on my desktop and 5 in start menu. All from different updates.
    They all lead to the same exe file. But have different names.

    Please Unity just stop putting version in to shortcut name and in to folder name in start menu. This should solve the problem.
    Thank you.
