I am attempting to deploy CONNECTION Client v10.00.10.13 silently as per the wiki using the command below and it consistently installs the desktop shortcut.
Silent Install Command: "blg6410001013en.exe BeCheckUpdateOption=3 BeCheckUpdateIsEnabled=0 /q"
It appears to honour this option when installing manually (i.e. same command options without /q); how can I force the installation to respect the do not "Create application shortcut on Desktop" option when performing a silent install?
Is there a complete list of all command line options available for the installation of CONNECTION Client v10.00.10.13?

Sorry for the delay. Use the following "blg6410001013en.exe InstallDesktopShortcutFromParent=0 /q"

Thank you for your reply and suggested solution.
I can confirm the "InstallDesktopShortcutFromParent=0" installation switch works for silent installations, but only when initiated from an elevated command prompt within a user session. When installing as the SYSTEM user though (i.e. with a GPO startup script) it continues to create the desktop shortcut.
Is there a known way to silently deploy CONNECTION Client to multiple computers without creating the desktop shortcut?
I've just sent the log files from the most recent installation via private message.
I was able to verify the different behaviour today, on my workstation at least, by running the installation from an elevated shell, as the the system user, using psexec.
Also, I observed that the automatic first run immediately after installation is opened within the user context of the elevated user and not the currently logged on standard user. As a result, when the standard user then enters their credentials, they are stored in the user profile of the elevated user and not their own.
Is there a way to prevent this immediate first run from occurring?
For shortcut problem, please try with InstallDesktopShortcutFromParent=1
To prevent launching add command line parameter
Thank you for the "PostInstallLaunchApplication" parameter, it works perfectly.
Still no success with preventing the desktop icon though. I have now resorted to deleting the shortcut as a post install cleanup task.
I know this is an old thread but to stop the installer form installing the DT Shortcut add InstallDesktopShortcutFromParent=2
Worked for me, from SCCM command running as system account on desktop.
I've asked the last reviewer to add it to the list in the wiki.
