Multiple icons for multiple versions of clickonce deployed app on taskbar settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a single instance app which uses notification icon for toolstrip menu and some related actions. The app is deployed as clickonce app and I see that all of those versions are listed under "which icons to show in taskbar" list of windows setting. I know how to clean-up them via registry entry, but such forced cleanup will also remove the settings which user has selected earlier. 

    I would like to know is there any way to force windows to identify the application/notification as coming from single application and not from different application, even though they are from different version and location? (since clickonce randomly places exe in appdata folder). Is there any extra ownership information I have to pass while using the NotifyIcon class?
