Error description

  • Rational Developer for System z - RDz - v9.5.1
    
    Description :
    On Windows 7 and 8, pin the RDz shortcut to the Windows taskbar
    and launch RDz.
    This creates a second icon on the Windows taskbar, and this one
    cannot be pinned.
    

Local fix

  • A manual solution can be implemented to solve this issue :
    1. Make sure RDz is started as one process by specifying the
    -vm argument in the eclipse.ini which points at the jvm.dll file
    from the JRE that is shipped with RDz (i.e replacing java.exe by
    the jvm.dll ).
    
    2. Remove the "appName" parameter from the plugin.xml file which
    defines the product. In case of RDz it is plugin.xml inside the
    com.ibm.rational.developer.systemz.product plugin.
    
    3. Start RDz from command line with the -clean argument (only
    once) to force RDz to reread the modified plugin.xml file.
