Solution

This is expected behavior due to a design change.
There is a difference in the way the thumbprint is calculated for applications in Receiver 4.9.6 and Workspace 1912. Due to this difference in design, there is a mismatch in the thumbprints when upgrading from Receiver 4.9.6 to WorkspaceApp 1912. This is causing the applications to reinstall, which in turn is causing the disappearance of the shortcuts.
From Workspace 1809, the above mentioned features have been added in the thumbprint calculation and the upgrade from 1809 to any higher version does not see this issue.
