No, the shortcut created is http://httpd.apache.org/docs

Which version of the MSI installer are you using?  (simply run msiexec.exe to discover it.)

It's the job of the browser to register itself appropriately to handle 
the http: space, even as a shortcut target, on Win32.

Glad you found an effective solution.  As this appears specific to your machine's config,

we won't worry about it, unless your msiexec version points us to further issues.
