Some visual assets missing in 1.2.6 release #498
The icon in the taskbar is blank when Pengwin is running and when pinned to the taskbar. The icon in the start menu is showing.
I have tried reinstalling the app along with some other things like deleting the Windows icon cache and restarting.
I have this same issue, appeared today after I rebooted my computer (last reboot before this was on Wednesday). Pinned icon in taskbar is invisible, pin itself is still there.
OS Name: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
Some visual assets are missing in 1.2.6. Depending on your resolution, the icon may be missing in the Start Menu or Taskbar.
I have traced the issue to a bug in Visual Studio 2019 that does not properly bundle some visual assets when the application is built in a folder that is being backed up by OneDrive with Files On Demand enabled, even if 'Always keep on this device' is enabled.
The workaround is to move the build folder and assets to a non-OneDrive folder and build there.
A new build with all visual assets included has been submitted to the store currently and should go out within 24 hours.
I apologize for any inconvenience.
Here is some additional detail.
Visual assets are provided by the Pengwin UWP wrapper, not the Linux image. This is why this problem occurred with the 1.2.6 update through the Microsoft Store and not an update of pengwin-setup or pengwin-base in the Linux environment.
The Pengwin app is built on a drive backed up by OneDrive with 'Always keep on this device' enabled so that files and assets and assets are not moved into the cloud by the Files On Demand feature.
This was not an issue when we were building with Visual Studio 2017.
This is a normal build log:
This is a build log that occurs when you have visual assets stored in a folder backed up by OneDrive as described above:
You can see that Visual Studio 2019 does not properly bundle all the visual assets from a OneDrive folders, even though they are there, generating several "warning PRI298: 0xdef00535".
Furthermore, these errors are moved off the screen when the build is complete, with no indication of anything is amiss.
This causes some users on some display resolutions to go without an icon.
The remediation we will take going forward is:
