My installer uses
<startMenuFolder> to add a couple of hierarchically structured shortcut items to the Start menu.
This works fine on all supported Windows versions, but on Windows 8, all the shortcuts appear as tiles on the Windows 8 Start screen.
This MSDN article says that "Whenever possible, desktop apps should have only one tile on the Start screen to provide a shortcut that launches the app".
So, is it possible to use
<startMenuFileShortcut> etc. to create shortcuts that appear in the Windows Start menu, but do not appear in the Windows 8 Start screen?
