ZS 12.5.1 - Pin to Taskbar on Windows 10

Post by jblount » Thu Aug 27, 2015 3:05 pm

When ZS is pinned to the taskbar on Windows 10, trying to open it ends up creating a second icon. The loading splash screen uses the original pinned icon, but then as soon as it drops into the actual IDE, a new icon spawns at the far end of the taskbar. I have tried the usual tricks to fix this (unpin the original icon and pin the running instance; right-click the running instance and pin the actual "zendstudio" executable; etc) and nothing seems to work, it refuses to stay put in the original pinned icon. I did not have this issue on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1, and it seemed to work sporadically during the Windows 10 insider preview, but it doesn't work at all on RTM.

Hi,
It looks that problem is related to Eclipse (in general) or Windows 10 release. Problem is reported on Eclipse side and also on Windows side. At the moment there is nothing more I can do. You can track progress with https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=314805.

I got this working once and I don't remember exactly how; I unpinned it months ago because I stopped using it, but now I want to use it again. I thought I had to edit some config file somewhere, but I'm stuck in limbo trying different things with completely inconsistent and nonsensical behavior happening.

If anyone can recommend anything, please do.

Why is this still a problem after years of Windows 7 being around and also being very popular? I expect more from Zend.

Are you talking about an issue with Windows 7 or Windows 10?
Pinning on Windows 7 works as expected - just tried it with Zend Studio 13.

Don't have this issue with zend studio 13 under windows 10.
But have the same issue(sort of) with the ubuntu launcher in ubuntu 15.04

Indeed, the .desktop file generated by Unity is not good.
You need to tune it manually:
1. Go to the ~/.local/share/applications/ folder. There should be a file with name zend_studio.desktop or similar name, assuming you've already locked Zend Studio to the launcher.
2. Open the .desktop file in a text editor.
3. Replace the content of the file with following (you need to correct the absolute paths to match your system):

Code: Select all

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Name=Zend Studio
Icon=/home/user/Zend/ZendStudio 13/icon.xpm
Exec="/home/user/Zend/ZendStudio 13/ZendStudio"
StartupNotify=false
StartupWMClass=Zend Studio
OnlyShowIn=Unity;
X-UnityGenerated=true
4. Save the editor.

The Zend Studio icon locked in the launcher should now work correctly.

Did you do anything special to get it working under Windows 10? I've tried all the tricks I can find and it still doesn't work for me. Windows and Zend both are x64 versions, does the x86 version of Zend work better maybe?

According to the discussion in the Eclipse bug that was linked in the second comment of this thread, this issue is a bug in Windows 10 and Microsoft recently fixed it in the Windows 10 Insider Preview build (10565) - see the last comment in the bug.
