Amazing, its not easy to work with other softwares. I´m using izpack + lauch4j to create my branded spark version, distributing with an msi package build on advanced installer(free) , nice hun?

Good to see the core developers work with install4j as standard

Hi. have you been able to achieve a proper icon for launch4j when grouping in the task bar of windows is activated? Currently l4j will use the Spark flame, but after grouping several windows in the task bar, l4j will change to the default Java icon.

Is there anything special in your branded version of Spark that could be of interest for Spark? Can you share your build.xml and the configurations for advanced installer, launch4j and izpack?

I´ll work this and share in the community.

About the icons, with the izpack i make the .jar installer and the launch4j build an executable file who uses the icon file on resources folder… i just replace the icon
