After Royal TS has been installed and started for the first time, you may see two entries in the start menu:

The first shortcut is created via the installer so that the user can start the application. The second one is created in the course of the shell registration to enable notifications, taskbar features, etc. This occurs the first time Royal TS is started after the installation.

Solution for Royal TS V6:

For Royal TS V6, please do the following:

1. Delete the Royal TS V6.lnk from the Start Menu/Programs folder

(%appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs)

2. Place the attached 'appsettings.json' in the following folder (%appdata%\code4ward)

This will prevent the shortcut to be recreated after you have deleted it

3. Double-check that there is only one Royal TS V6 shortcut in the start menu.

Solution for Royal TS V5:

The solution is slightly different in Royal TS V5. Although we do not recommend it, you can prevent the shell registration by modifying the Royal TS configuration file. Open RoyalTS.exe.config from the install directory and change the following setting to "false" to prevent the second icon from being created:

<setting name="CreateApplicationShortcut" serializeAs="String">



Please Note: this may have side effects when Royal TS is displaying notifications (missing icons, name not displayed correctly). It may also result in the app not being listed in the "Notifications & actions" settings of Windows.
