Xojo 2014 R3.2 shortcut does not appear on Windows 10

Hello Everyone,

I just installed Xojo 2014 R 3.2, and then uninstalled Xojo 2014 R 3.1 and both feedback and Xojo shortcuts did not install in the startup button.

The programs are installed on Windows 10, but the shortcuts are not available. I can add them manually and it works.

Has anyone else noticed this issue?

Thanks,

Eugene D

Just some added information…

After rebooting, the icons do not appear.

Here is a bug report I filed last thursday :

37769 - Windows 10 Tech Preview 2014R32 install does not install the icon and desktop messed up

OS: Windows 10 Tech preview

Xojo: 2014R3.2

Steps: I know Windows 10 tech preview is not released, but yet, this is a bad enough bug with the installer to at least report it.

The Windows installer works fine all along, expect at the end, it does not create the icon on the desktop as requested, the background picture does away and the desktop becomes all black, and icons are no longer what they should be. For instance a tiff file has a Xojo executable icon, and all Chrome shortcuts became small removable disks.

After retsart everything is mostly OK, although a lot of icons have been moved.

Thanks for the reply Michel (I always like your replies!!!).

My experience is similar, but not quite the same - very close though.

The windows installer works fine, and an icon is created on the desktop at the end. There is no folder shortcut, and no start icons in the window start menu.

I didn’t have this experience, but this is definitely something that needs to be looked at.

After installing my own applications on a few Windows 10 computers with InnoSetup, there were no problems. This seems to be Xojo dependent - as far as I can tell. :slight_smile:

Thanks!

Here is the new Feedback case link:

I checked with my apps. I do not use Innosetup but CreateInstall, and everything is fine.

I do suspect something to be wrong in the tool used by Xojo for the installer.

In particular, the messed up desktop and the absence of icon look like some unorthodox method is used that does not agree with Windows 10.

It could be that I use the “Rapid” update option for tech preview that explains the different experiences. I may have a more recent version of Windows 10.

Yes, this is very possible. After typing Winver.exe, Windows 10 version is: Version 6.4 (Build 9841).

The Version number is another way to say Windows 10.

For instance Windows 8.1 is 6.3.

My Build is 9879.

There’s a Windows 10 TP update in the last day or two: my build is now 9926.

Path to get the last iso:

Windows 10 iso

and read the web page to download a 3.9GB iso file…

I Installed Xojo yesterday and all is well, no problem with missing short cuts etc
My laptop update about 2 hours ago to 9926.and now runs terrible, the CPU is at 75 + % most of the time and the fan is going crazy :confused:

This system is 32 bit

The 9926 build is very different. System icons have changed. They are now flat. Sort of closer to Yosemite in design. They have added Cortana to the task bar. I don’t know what it does, I have no mike on my PC.

Problem with the latest update Build 9926 : the anti virus F-Secure has disappeared from the computer. It was fine with the previous build, and now it is no longer present in the notifications, or the Start menu All programs. As far as I can tell, no F-Secure process in the Task Manager.

The program seems still present in the C:\Program file(x86) folder but I am not sure what is actually there.

The security center has changed as well, and no longer seems to look for an antivirus software.

TP = Tech Preview (although that often has another meaning here in North America)
Basically “its an alpha” no matter how much it builds on the old code base

Nobody denies that.

What is wrong, though, to exchange impressions about it, pretty much the same way we could have done it for the developer issues of Mavericks and Yosemite ?

Didn’t say there was anything wrong did I ?

It’s a tech preview - thing WILL change and lord knows if the bugs being reported about it currently to us are our doing or MS’

I wouldn’t get to bent out of shape about it just yet

Don’t worry. No more bug reporting about Xojo under Windows 10.

Who said that? We appreciate people trying it out and filing cases. As a note, Microsoft resolved the installer icons not showing up on desktop/start in 9926+.
