Icon Missing

#1
I have installed the latest build 2.9.0.90 and the program icon is missing. When I try to change it I get this message:

Unable to save changes to 'EasyBCD 2.0 Beta.lnk'.

The system cannot find the file specified.

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling?

No, I was going to do that as a last resort. I thought there might be an easier way. I'll give it a try then, thanks.

Addendum:

Tried uninstall and reinstall and that didn't work. The desktop icon is ok, but the start menu is still showing the generic icon and I can't change it. ???

If you delete the icon in the start menu, then manually create a new shortcut to EasyBCD and place it there, does the issue persist?

Windows remembers what apps you used in the recently used list as well as any other properties of the shortcut such as icon until its been deleted. Delete the shortcut and startup EasyBCD. A new shortcut with the correct icon should now appear in the start menu.

Iv'e seen this a couple of times with other applications - at times, Windows can be just plain stubborn :smile:

Glad it sorted itself out though!
