Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-780) Windows 7 taskbar display of pinned Studio icon
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2012 18:24:59 GMT


Pierre-Arnaud Marcelot commented on DIRSTUDIO-780:

I had exactly the same test on my colleague's system.

To detect the JRE we're reading the Windows registry:
> ReadRegStr $1 HKLM "SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment" "CurrentVersion"
> ReadRegStr $2 HKLM "SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\$1" "JavaHome"

I'm afraid it will be difficult to detect the 64 bit JVM on a 64 bit system.

Now, that issue won't occur very often since most people will only have a single JRE installed
and if they have multiple JREs, I guess they're clever enough to select the right one (like
you notice that the one select would most probably fail because it was not a 64 bit JVM).

So, all in all, I think we're good here.

What do you think?

BTW, I hope you were still able to pin the application to the taskbar after it successfully

> I'm using the Windows 7 style taskbar where you can "pin" applications to the taskbar.
> In this case I've pinned the Apache Directory Studio icon from the startmenu which points
to: "C:\Program Files\Apache Directory Studio\Apache Directory Studio.exe"
> When clicking on the icon in the taskbar it starts Studio as it should but then the icon
should change into the icon of the running app. 
> This doesn't happen with Studio 2M2. The icon is changed while Studio is loading and
it even has a nice progress bar shown in the taskbar, then when it has loaded the icon is
changed back as if the app isn't running and another icon for the running Studio is displayed.
> I'm not marking this as a bug since it could be by design to allow loading several Studio
instances at once? In this case PuTTY has a nicer way of doing it, since you can right click
on the running instance in the taskbar and start a new instance.
