Studio 10.1.6: How to realize automatically "Pin to taskbar" during installation?

Post by MUP » Mon Feb 28, 2022 2:47 pm

Using "Ranorex-10.1.6+git.0128aca3.msi" on Windows 10 Pro 64bit

Running ORCA and searched within the msi tables "Shortcut" and "Property" but nothing found that could be easily set to "true" to get the Pin.

How to realize automatically "Pin to taskbar" during a Powershell based silent installation with

msiexec.exe /i ....msi ... ADDLOCAL=ALL /qn /norestart /passive ?


Thanks.

Hi,

I'm quite sure there is nothing like this directly in the setup package. It's somehow complicated even via code, but it should be possible but only with certain Windows releases and SDK:
