I have found out that if you include a simple xml file and an image in application directory, Windows 8 and above will display it as a ‘Tile’ in Start Screen/Menu, instead of using ‘icon’.
<Application xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"> <VisualElements BackgroundColor="#a44822" ShowNameOnSquare150x150Logo="off" ForegroundText="light" Square150x150Logo="Renoise.png" Square70x70Logo="Renoise.png"/> </Application>
The “ShowNameOnSquare” obviously will hide or show renoise text on the tile.
The file needs to be called Renoise.VisualElementsManifest.xml
My suggestion is to include the Renoise.VisualElementsManifest.xml and image of your choosing for Windows installers
I have attached a 7z file with a bunch of Renoise tiles I made a couple years ago.
