Hi all - was hoping for a little help:

1) I am running an AT&T Tilt that has the HTC ROM.
2) After switching to HTC ROM I had an icon in Programs simply titled "Java" to run my Java apps
3) At some point, this icon was no longer available under "Programs" - however I know the Program is still available since I can download and run the Gmail app (gmail.com/app) just fine.

So - couple of questions:

- How can I get the Java icon back?
- Is there another way for me to put a shortcut to a particular Java app (like the Gmail app) in the Programs menu?

Thanks in advance for the help!!

Try the explorer, there is a possibility the icon is in "hidden" mode, so I would go on the explorer, and check under windows, start menu, program files...and there de-active hidden files...it could solve your problem...

Any other ideas floating around??

Recreate the shortcut in Programs that points back to the Java.exe in \Windows\ or just copy the Java.lnk from \Windows\ back into Programs.

"Something" is regularly deleting that Java shortcut link. It happened to me before my first hard-reset (2007/09/28) and it happened to me again yesterday.

Any cleanup apps see this as an invalid shortcut and deletes it (SKTools, pocket machinic etall)

I put the Java shortcut back in and then ran SKTools.

SKtools identified both \Windows\Java.Ink and \Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Java.Ink as "Bad Shortcuts" - Not really sure why.

Thanks for the suggestion!!
