Due to a limitation in Windows 7, only Application (executables) shortcuts can be pinned to the Taskbar.
Normally to pin a specific program to the Windows 7 taskbar, just drag and drop the shortcut onto the taskbar, or right-click on the program icon and click "Pin to Taskbar."
However, this will not work with the StarTeam CPC as it uses a Java-based launcher system. So the normal 'pinning' of this application/shortcut will only pin the Java process to the Taskbar. The CPC will not launch.
The workaround is to 'trick' the Windows operating system into believing the StarTeam shortcut is an actual application.
Optionally, you can use the "Change Icon" button to change the 'pinned' application to be the StarTeam icon. Simply browse to your StarTeam CPC installer folder and select the 'starteamcp.ico' file.
The StarTeam CPC will now launch directly from the Windows 7 Taskbar.
