Why is a new DeskTop Icon always generated and the old one disabled on a AnyRail update?

This is not supposed to happen in the standard installation!
There should be a shortcut icon on the desktop pointing to "C:\Program Files (x86)\AnyRail6\AnyRail6.exe"

Yes, it does create a new desktop icon. However I do not like to clutter my desktop with Icons as I do videos of my screen. I put extra icons on my Task Bar instead, so every update the task bar icon has to be deleted and the desktop icon moved to the taskbar.

Okay, so if I understand correctly, when you update you start without a desktop icon, and after the installation, a new icon is created.
That is indeed the standard behavior. If there's no desktop icon, it is created.

I'll have to check the installer software to see if we can add an option to not do that.
