Desk top icon disappeared @anadius. [SOLVED] Empty Desk top icon disappeared @anadius. [SOLVED]

Hi Anadius

something strange has happened with my quick launch Icon on my desktop, After I downloaded your all in one version, and installing the game on an external HD, I could launch it without problems from my desktop. 

Last night there was an update for windows 10 and now the icon has disappeared. Is there a way to start the game from within the installed game?

thank you in advance

Out of curiosity, was the game installed on an external (Non-C:) drive?

Yes, since from my work they have locked down our Laptops and I could not install to
C: drive. They have also installed Avast and I can not enter any exceptions. Now the actual game is installed on an external hard drive and I can play even with documents still on C. Weird. Smile

I've heard this happens (sometimes) with Windows updates: during the update process, custom drive letters are "scrambled", and shortcuts may not work again anymore. If that happens, just go to the location where you have the game installed, and re-create a shortcut. Or just start the game directly from one of the .exe files under Game\Bin.

Have fun! Problem solved, topic closed.  Yess, aye lieeke!
