Updating damages existing "pinned" shortcuts

Reported by: kookyman Owned by:

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

When you pin the shortcut to VirtualBox to the Start Menu or Taskbar in Windows 7, and then update VirtualBox (Min to Min[4.1.0 to 4.1.2], or Major to Major[3.x to 4.x]) the shortcut appears to be deleted, leaving a broken pinned shortcut that needs to be deleted, and then recreated.

No other software I have pinned appears to have this problem when performing updates.

Has happened with every version of VirtualBox I've had installed, starting around 3.1.8, possibly earlier.

Expected behavior should let existing shortcuts, pinned and otherwise, should still be functional after simple updates.

Confirmed still applies to 5.1.26 r117224 (and every 5.0 version I've used).
