STRIPs behaviour in Windows 7’s taskbar is a little odd. I pin STRIP to the taskbar but the icon shown is one that shows a blank sheet of white paper rather than the standard STRIP icon. Also, when I start STRIP from the pinned icon, a second blank icon is displayed on the taskbar with this being highlighted as an active program - the original pinned icon stays unhighlighted. This is not standard behaviour.
What version of STRIP for Windows are you current running? This can be found in the Help → About menu.
I’m using v2.5.10 but have seen this behaviour on multiple Windows 7 64-bit PCs over quite a few prior versions of STRIP. I think there was one version that I saw the correct icon on the taskbar but then when I upgraded to the next version it changed back to a blank white page icon again.
Can you try deleting the existing link pinned to the task bar, relaunching STRIP for Window fresh and pinning the icon. Does that resolve the display issue?
Nope - that doesn’t make any difference. If I unpin the icon, and start STRIP, even the active program STRIP icon on the taskbar is shown as a blank white sheet icon. Pinning it again still gives a second blank white sheet icon.
That is a very interesting behavior. I just tried pinning the icon in a fresh Windows 7 64 bit VM and it displayed properly. We will keep an eye out for this in the future.
I’d like to post an image of what I get - how does one add an image to a post here?
I just adjusted your trust level. Can you try dragging an image into the post editor?
@developernotes - thanks
Here’s what I get on 3 different PCs. The inactive taskbar icon is the one I pinned, while a second icon appears for the active STRIP dialog.
