|Unfortunately, I'm reviving a thread I started about a month ago:
It's happened again that my DVA Desktop shortcuts for my multiple instances of DVA have disappeared. The first time, I thought it was some weird computer glitch; now, I'm wondering if updating Java is the culprit, or if updating my graphics card driver is the cause? I'm pretty sure both happened around the time the desktop shortcuts disappeared the first time, too.
Has this happened to anyone else, and is there a way to prevent it from happening with future updates?
At various times in the past, my desktop shortcuts to my DVA instances would be "broken" after a Java update, but that was just a matter of editing the path to the "new" location of the Java update. A bit annoying, but problem.
However, having the desktop shortcuts disappear completely is a major PITA that takes time to recreate them, a process that involves digging out notes to remember what the different parameters were for each shortcut.
I'd like to avoid having to redo the whole thing over and over each time there's an update of whatever is causing this issue. <sigh>
Also, this might sound like a stupid question, but is it possible to backup my DVA desktop shortcuts, maybe to a folder in my Documents, so that if they disappear from my Desktop again, I can just copy those shortcuts back to my Desktop to have all my DVA instances functional again in seconds? I've not gotten the DVA shortcuts recreated yet to test myself, so I'm hoping someone might know.
