Question Windows 8 shortcuts mess

Hi!

My NSIS installer creates many shortcuts but only .exe ones appear in Start screen in Metro UI of Windows 8. But my app is a components library, and these .exes are samples, they don't play the main role. At the same time, shortcuts to .chm of documentation (the most important file) don't appear at all. Is there a way to control which shortcuts appear and which don't? Ideally, I would have a single shortcut to the folder where all other shortcuts reside. I guess this is possible with "Immersive Application Shortcuts" folder but at the time being NSIS does not seem to provide any tools to support this folder.

Also, I would like to use this approach only on Windows 8 (this means the installer must be able to change its behavior depending on OS version). However, http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Windows_Version_Detection page does not have anything about Windows 8 yet.

Would be glad for any help!
