Looks like I was incorrect about Nero SIPPS.
There had been talk of discontinuing providing Nero SIPPS with the Nero 7 Retail build, as we deemed it was not being used by very many users, and it requires a large amount of our resources. And of course customers are complaining our software is bloatware, so trimming it out seemed like it might be a good idea.
But I guess at the last minute management had a change of heart and would decided to continue with the product.
If you do a FRESH install of Nero 18.104.22.168 from off our website, you will not see Nero SIPPs. It seems there was a communication issue, and this information did not get to the Installer Team creating the Nero 22.214.171.124 build.
So, if you update from an older version of Nero 7 that has SIPPS already, using the Nero ProductSetup feature, it will keep SIPPs on the desktop and in the StartSmart under APPLICATIONS.
If you update by downloading the FULL build from off the website and install over an existing version of Nero 7 with SIPPS, it will remove Nero SIPPS shortcut from the DeskTop and from the APPLICATIONS field in Nero StartSmart. But you can go to C:\Program Files\Nero\Nero Sipps and launch it from this folder, or create the shortcut to your desktop manually to launch.
If you do a fresh install of Nero 126.96.36.199 from off our website, it will not put Nero SIPPS shortcut on the Desktop or in the APPLICATIONS field in Nero SmartStart. But again, you can go to C:\Program Files\Nero\Nero Sipps and launch it from this folder, or create the shortcut to your desktop manually to launch.
Sorry for the confusion. We'll get this addressed in the next update we post.
