Follow-up Comment #4, bug #57740 (project octave):

Not that anything there should have changed, but there is some registering of
app ids that goes on in the installer which has to do with the icon vs
executable - see ExecWait calls to win7appid.exe

It should be mapping "gnu.octave.XXXXXXXX" to a shortcut. That value should
also match waht it is set in octave by
pfnSetCurrentProcessExplicitAppUserModelID (L"gnu.octave." VERSION);

Looking at a previous 5.1.90 binaries they appear to be using
gnu.octave.5.1.90, however it looks like the released version is using

Running from commandline to query:

$ win7appid.exe GNU\ Octave\\ \(GUI\).lnk
Current AppId: gnu.octave.

$ win7appid.exe GNU\ Octave\ 5.1.90/Octave-5.1.90\ \(GUI\).lnk
Current AppId: gnu.octave.5.1.90

And looking in release-octave the win version has the additional '.0' so we
need change something in the nsis script to use the real version rather than
win version
