Find And Run Robot / Re: Broken icons for 64bit programs
« on: January 03, 2020, 05:48 PM »
So I figured out the problem; there's nothing wrong in farr, but the program installer. The icon path for this shortcut was set to `%SystemRoot%\Installer\{7CDF6754-F5A0-4F34-B589-197530FEF862}\ProgramIcon` — instead of the relevant exe/ico/dll path — which is actually the icon as shown. So false alarm, sorry. Very strange installer behavior.

We were in touch via email, no worries.

And yeah, only for spek.lnk. Attached the exe and shortcut (spek.alias = spek.lnk). This seems to be a different problem from the original, but it also only happens in farr, so...

I just noticed another broken icon, but it seems to be a diffferent problem. This happens with both the latest release and this thread's beta.

The properties window is the one opened through farr, which for the previous issue showed the broken path. This time farr actually gets the path right. The "skip some icon lookups" option is disabled. This copy of Spek (0.8.2) is installed with Chocolatey (which shouldn't make any difference).

Also, the latest release from the homepage installs 2.229.01 while the website says it'll be 2.234.01. The beta installer installs the same version number, 2.229.01.

Copying the exe to another path makes the icon work:

Well I'm om 10, so probably some influence from the OS changed between 7 and 10. Would you like to set up the source code and dev env on my pc and remote into it so you can debug it?

I'll try the beta in a minute.

Turning that option off and restarting farr doesn't change anything

Sure, I can help test (I'm a software dev, though not specialized in windows native). Thanks for picking this up.

As previously mentioned here and some other topics, FARR somehow incorrectly loads icons for 64bit programs.

A perfectly working shortcut's properties as shown by the system:

The exact same shortcut file, shown by farr:
DELLSON_2019-12-24_01-16-41[1].png

Is there a solution (or acceptable workaround like some hack in farr) to this issue in sight, please? It has confused (only just found it was farr all along) and annoyed me for years by now. I read that it was actually fixed before but then regressed.

The links in your quote are different ones.
