I don't pretend to understand the 160 or 32 character issue, but I did try to replicate what Rod mentioned and believe it may be browser specific.

When I copied the code from the wiki

http://lbpe.wikispaces.com/Textbox+with+Columns

and brought it into LibertyBASIC from the MS Edge browser, I received the following message: "Basic Compile Halted: Syntax Error"


When I did the same copy/paste from Chrome, Vivaldi, and Firefox it ran just fine on my Windows 10 system.

Just a thought...

In the event that a reboot is always working for getting the icon to appear correctly on the .LNK (shortcut) then you might be able to just restart explorer.exe; this should force a refresh of the icon cash. In the event that it doesn't work then you could kill explorer.exe, delete the user's IconCache.db file under their appdata folder, and restart explorer.exe.

I'm pretty sure there is a more elegant way to force this, but the methods above should work.

The installer I use for my program (Inno Setup) has a section that sets up file associations. When that part runs it refreshes icon cash.

Please be careful when deleting the Icon Cache in Windows 10. Things have changed quite a bit. Please look at:
https://www.howtogeek.com/232779/how-to-rebuild-a-broken-icon-cache-in-windows-10/
This is a very detailed description of the MANY files involved.

I don't think it is a big problem. I consider this icon issue an OS hiccup, since we are beta testing, and there are some identicall shortcuts on these b1 and b2 distributions.
The system cache should clean itself after a while.

Focus on the real issues, the icon can be displayed by selecting refresh from the desktop context menu, so it is not an issue, just a Windows annoyance.

That doesn't work on Windows 7, but I agree, this is a Windows bug.

“Buy Upgrade Online!” Button:

When clicking the “Buy Upgrade Online!” button on the toolbar, I noticed my browser would open on a BLANK page (www.libertybasic.com/toolbarlb4.html). Though this isn’t a show-stopping bug, it may impact the user’s perception of the program and ultimately a potential sale.

I saw this testing an unregistered copy of LB 4.5.1 beta2. Once I upgraded my software from 4.0.4 to 4.5.0, the beta2 version picked up my registration information from 4.5.0 and the “Buy Upgrade Online!” button is now gone from both 4.5.0 and 4.5.1 beta2.

Regards,
Joe
