I had the Standard (Free) Backupper installed and the desktop shortcut on Win 7 showed the backup.exe icon.
I decided to change to Professional and downloaded the free trial to test it out. But that installation does not show the Backupper icon but just the generic Windows icon for an exe file! I tried using the shortcut properties "change icon" and selected the Backupper icon to be used. The win icon did not change.
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Backupper (ABPro.exe) and af ter restarting, it STILL only shows the win exe type icon on the shortcut. Even deleting the shortcut icons and sending a new one to the desktop did not have the Backupper icon showing.
