VIA VPN Client Silent Install

For starters, I am a server guy, but my network team asked that a package be created to push the VIA Client to our users. I am trying to push the x86 installer and having issues. I am able to push the client and it installs fine for all users, but about half the time I don’t get shortcuts on the desktop or in the start menu for all users. It will create the Aruba folder in All Programs, but no shortcuts. I have tried creating a transform file and still see the same issues. Obviously I could script the shortcuts to be created, but shouldn't need to. The account pushing the VIA Client is a domain admin account and is used to push all of our other programs without issues. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Windows 7 Professional x86
VIA Client Version:
Command Line Install:
msiexec.exe /i ansetup.msi /qn /norestart

VIA installation creates application shortcut so that it can be displayed for all users.
For the windows 7, the location of the folder is "C:\Users\Public\Desktop".
If you dont see the VIA shortcut (.lnk file) created in this folder, installer might have missed it.
To check if it is a miss, collect msi Install log by adding "/l*v log.txt" to the msi command line. Either post the log file here of look for log the containing "AN_CA_CreateDesktopShortcut".
