To add a shortcut to the desktop using ProfileItems try something like this (notice I leave out the SubDir=)

Name = Shortcut Name,0x00000008,25
CmdLine = 16422,%PROG_DIR%,Program.exe
WorkingDir = 16422,%PROG_DIR%

To delete it use

Name  = Shortcut Name,0x0000000A,25

I just change the flag from 0x00000008 to 0x0000000A (,25 is the desktop number)

Here are some other custom flags I discovered

0x00000008,2 = %UserProfile%\Start Menu\Programs

0x00000008,5 = %UserProfile%\My Documents

0x00000008,6 = %UserProfile%\Favorites <- Perfect for adding custom IE Bookmarks
