I sounds like the features of the app may be "advertised" meaning that they don't get installed until first used.  If this is the case, you should be able to change that component/shortcut to not be advertised, and have it actually install during the installation process.

If you look in the event log, it will tell the reason it tries to self-repair.

Sorry for being ignorant , How can i change this component/shortcut to not be advertised, and include this in during the installation process.

jmcmunn, if this was the case, it would have happened only once - hope you agree.

I agree, it should only happen the first time you run the app if this (advertisement) is the reason.  The OP does not explicitly state whether it happens every time or just once.

I've seen MS Office ask me repeatedly regardless of what I do on some machines.  :-)

If repeatedly, see my article from the comment ID: 39708654 :-)

If it's about extensions .pip and .pst, I have a transform that fixes it.
