Desktop Shortcut path is corrupt when MSI file is deployed silently.

Hello I am new to software packaging and deploying. I am having a problem with one of the msi installers that I am attempting to deploy. The shortcut path is getting corrupted. When I run it normally with prompts it works fine and the shortcut path is correct but when running it with the /qn (quiet mode) switch the shortcut target path points to the user desktop and not the folder where the .exe is. I am attempting to create a transform that both creates a shortcut in the Start Menu folder and corrects the shortcut problem. Any ideas why this might be happening?
