Remote install does not add SQL Backup to Start Menu

After performing an Install/Upgrade Server Components on a remote server, SQL Backup is not listed in Start -> Programs. However it does appear in the Add/Remove Programs list as "SQL Backup 4 (Server Components)".

Installing without removing Server Components leaves two items in the Add/Remove Programs list. "SQL Backup" and "SQL Backup 4 (Server Components)".

I love the remote install option, especially when deploying/upgrading a large number of servers at once. It saves logging into the machine locally.

But can we be given an option to have SQL Backup appear in the Start Menu after install? In most of my instances, I will want to be able to run the program locally, but install remotely.

    Presently, the remote install only installs the service app (SQBCoreService.exe) and extended stored procedure library (xp_sqlbackup.dll).
