How to: pin PDS icon to the Windows 7 taskbar

When pinning the start menu icon to the taskbar, starting PDS from the taskbar results in an additional icon on the taskbar. This is an Eclipse issue which required a few additional steps to solve for PDS:

  1. remove the -vm parameter (and value) from the shortcut (was: C:\progress\DeveloperStudio3.7\eclipse\eclipse.exe -vm c:\progress\developerstudio3.7\jre\bin\javaw.exe, now: C:\progress\DeveloperStudio3.7\eclipse\eclipse.exe)
  2. remove javaw.exe from the -vm value in eclipse.ini (was: -vm c:/progress/developerstudio3.7/jre/bin/javaw.exe, now: c:/progress/developerstudio3.7/jre/bin/)
  3. ensure PDS is not pinned to the taskbar
  4. start PDS
  5. when started and your workspace has been opened, pin to taskbar - the taskbar icon defaults to the standard eclipse icon
  6. adjust the eclipse icon to the 'progress' icon available in the same directory as eclipse.exe (C:\progress\DeveloperStudio3.7\eclipse) - note that you will need to reboot for this to take effect
