Default JDownloader not stacking in Windows 7 taskbar

Hello, JDownloader community. First and foremost, thanks for developing such a great app.

I'm using Windows 7 and found this little "bug", which I don't think it may be considered a real bug, but rather an "annoyance". If you pin the program to the taskbar and you click on it to load it, Windows places a new icon for it, instead of using the one that had been pinned, as you can see here:



The only way to make it stack is pinning the jdownloader.jar instead of the jdownloader.exe used to execute the program, but this way, instead of the regular "world-with-arrow" icon, the default Java icon is shown.

Greetings,
Joey.

did you try other java apps too? we dont know how windows determine process to be stacked and in java world there is only the java process...so it would be nice to know if other projects (eg azuerus) this does work....if so we can find out why^^

Hello,

id like to see this working, too.
I looked at the current Vuze version and it works with it.
I tried an Eclipse RCP app and it also worked.
One difference between those apps and JDownloader is that their process gets displayed as azureus.exe or myrcpapp.exe in the taskmanager whereas JDownloader gets displayed as javaw.exe.
My guess is that jdownloader.exe spawns a new process "java -params.." and quits after that whereas azureus spawns some kind of child process and keeps running.

Regards,
oopepe

I've made a summary of that thread, because of syntactic reasons it didn't work the first time.

You can change the jD process image name to JDownloader by following this procedure :-

1) Go to the the Java install directory. The Standard path is C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin

2) Create a copy of javaw.exe and rename that copy to JDownloader.exe

3) Create a shortcut. The target of the shortcut should be "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\JDownloader.exe" -Xmx512m -jar "C:\Program Files\JDownloader\JDownloader.jar" and if necessary correct the path of both Java and JDownloader

4) Move the shortcut to your desktop or wherever you prefer and run it.

Note that there must be another solution to this problem, because jD v.0.4 didn't have this problem.

jD v.0.4 has a binary JDownloader.exe of 34 KB. I'm able to read some strings in the file. One of them is "This application was configured to use a bundled Java Runtime Environment but the runtime is missing or corrupted."

In my archive of older jD versions you'll find v.0.4. as well :- hXXp://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=440d0e65dc3b9b1019747bd91027d4ddaed3c187eb65c611 (the forum inserts a space, so, also remove the space in the URL)

EDIT: I've also uploaded the process starter. It's the file "JDownloader v.0.4.exe (jD process starter only).rar". Just unpack it and move the JDownloader.exe file to your jD folder.

although this is a cheap work around, microangelo will do it. use microangelo on javaw.exe and change it to the jdownloader icon

the old exe starter from 0.4 doesnt work well because jd updates and removes it everytime.

is there plans to fix it without any workarounds?

I've no Java icons on my desktop nor in my task bar and I've used the method described.

I prefer thee, not coffee.
