Subject [jira] [Commented] (DIRSTUDIO-780) Windows 7 taskbar display of pinned Studio icon
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2012 21:16:59 GMT


Aleks M commented on DIRSTUDIO-780:


Yes, I could pin the application just fine.

I took a look at those keys in my registry and they actually point to the 64-bit JRE believe
it or not:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment
CurrentVersion: 1.6
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment\1.6
JavaHome: C:\Program Files\Java\jre6

I had to dig deeper to find out what was going on so I turned on ProcessMonitor and it turns
out that the installer is reading another part of the registry, below Wow6432Node:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment
There my JavaHome points to C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7

My guess is that's because the installer is a 32-bit process but I have no proof of this.

>          Issue Type: Question
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-M2

>            Priority: Trivial
> Hello
> I've noticed one more thing.
> 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.
