I got a new laptop a month ago. I'm running RE 090_MSAccess on Windows 7.
When RE launches, only the Java icon appears on the taskbar.
On my previous machine running WinXP, the RE icon would appear not the Java
More of an annoyance than anything because the Java icon moves around on the
taskbar depending on whatever else I'm running at the time.
Is this an issue with the Windows registry?
Are you using the 64 bit version of Windows 7 ???
I have setup some notes on how to change the icon http://record-
For the MsAccess version I use NSIS, on 64 bit windows for some reason the
shortcut points to an icon
in C:\Windows instead of c:\Windows (86) where it actually resides
Looks like there was a bug report filed for this with NSIS https://sourceforg
1) I will update the installer and store the icon in the user directory
rather than the program directory.
2) Installing into C:\Windows (86) directly might work
Changing the icon didn't work. Gives me this error:
The name 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Merant\vm\common\jre\win32\bin\javaw.exe'
specified in the Target box is not valid. Make sure the path and file name are
You'll get back to me once the issue with NSIS is resolved?
I am redoing the installers with icons stored outside the Program Files
directory, should be available in a week or two
Also found some other installers have the same issue
I have created a new installer that stores the icons in a different directory,
Try installing the new version. (you may need to delete the existing short cuts ???)
I did a clean install using the MSAccess 0.91.1 installer. (I deleted all folders before installing) But there was no change...still just launches with Java icon only.
Ignore my last post. I must have done something wrong before but now I got it to work. Thanks for the patch!
