Problem installing shortcuts to start menu after formating

Hi there

i have just formated my old windows 7 home premium and got windows 7 ultimate x32 , i downloaded the game i usually play online (C&C Renegade) when i nearly finish inputing all the information in the installation of the game , it said that something is missing in windows , i believe my windows lost some resources , the game cannot detect the folder that shortcuts gets created in for the startmenu , i believe the folder name is startmenu/programs , although i have that already , but is there anything else required to install shortcuts in windows 7 ultimate ? im unable to finish installation

P.S the Error says " The folder name is not valid , please ensure that the syntax is correct.
