The wrong icon is displayed when launching multiple Microsoft Internet Explorers with a custom icon

Version 1

    Problem

    If several Microsoft Internet Explorer shortcuts that use a URL as a parameter are configured, the incorrect icon may be displayed in a managed RES ONE Workspace session.

    For example, two websites are configured as below.

    Website 1

     
    Executable: c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe
    Parameter: URL1
    Icon: Custom icon1

    Website 2
     
    Executable:  c:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplorer.exe
    Parameter: URL2
    Icon: Custom icon2

    When Website1 is launched, the correct icon is shown. If afterwards Website 2 is launched, the icon of Website 1 is being displayed.  Launching Website 1 again will display the icon of Website 2.

    Launching a default Microsoft Internet Explorer without parameters may also be affected. The default icon will then also display an incorrect icon.


     

    Cause

    The custom icon that will be displayed in the launched Microsoft Internet Explorer window is directly related to the Microsoft Internet Explorer which is present in the recently opened Programs List in the Start Menu.

     

    Solution

    Not related to RES products. Issue will also occur without using RES ONE Workspace.

    Workaround:

    Right click on the Microsoft Internet Explorer application in the recently opened Programs List in the Start Menu, select "Remove from this list". After the second launch of the same application it will be shown with the correct custom icon.
