I just updated a small
MathLink program that I made a while ago, and recompiled it using the new
WSTP system (Mathematica 11.2).
The new version runs fine, but now this external
WSTP program is shown in the taskbar (on Windows 10) once it's called via
Install, which was not the case with the old version that I created a while ago with the old
MathLink system. On one of my computers, a (frozen) console window is shown when I click on the taskbar item, but on another system nothing happens when I click on that taskbar item...
Interestingly, this even happens for the pre-compiled
WSTP programs supplied with Mathematica (for example the
addtwo program described on the
Install help page).
I build my program using VS 2017 using the instructions in the Mathematica documentation. I already tried this instruction to force the linker to use the "Windows" type instead of "Console", but it didn't change anything...
Any ideas on how one can get rid of these
WSTP programs showing up in the taskbar?
