Setup in Start Menu does not work

Description

After installing the "setup" package, the shortcut in the Start Menu does not work, as it has blank fields in the shortcut properties.

Looking in /etc/postinstall/setup.bat is not using xxmklink correctly. Re-executing the command show the following output:

C:\>xxmklink "%OSGEO4W_STARTMENU%\Setup.lnk" "%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\bin\setup.bat -R %OSGEO4W_ROOT%" "" "" "Installer" 1 "%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\OSGeo4W.ico"

XXMkLink     ver 1.00    (c)2005 Copyright  Pixelab, Inc.

The shortut created as follows

Shortcut path:     C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\OSGeo4W\
Setup.lnk
Target object:     C:\OSGeo4W\bin\setup.bat -R C:\OSGeo4W
Arguments;
Working Directory:
Description:       Installer
Display Mode:      Normal Window (1)
Icon file:         C:\OSGeo4W\OSGeo4W.ico

The arguments and work directory are not correctly set. Furthermore, the -R flag to osgeo4w-setup-work.exe appears to not start it up, so I'm not sure what it does. It might need to be left off.

Here is my suggested fix for /etc/postinstall/setup.bat:

xxmklink "%OSGEO4W_STARTMENU%\Setup.lnk" "%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\bin\setup.bat" "" "%OSGEO4W_ROOT%" "Installer" 1 "%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\OSGeo4W.ico"

with output

XXMkLink     ver 1.00    (c)2005 Copyright  Pixelab, Inc.

The shortut created as follows

Shortcut path:     C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\OSGeo4W\
Setup.lnk
Target object:     C:\OSGeo4W\bin\setup.bat
Arguments;
Working Directory: C:\OSGeo4W
Description:       Installer
Display Mode:      Normal Window (1)
Icon file:         C:\OSGeo4W\OSGeo4W.ico
