This is a bit tricky in Windows 7. But this is how you can make it work:
1. RMB on desktop, new, shortcut
2. Browse to location of vault.
3. Do NOT click 'next' yet. Add 'explorer.exe ' (including the space but without the quotes) in front of the path to the vault.
5. Enter name for shortcut
7. RMB on shortcut, select properties
8. Select tab 'Shortcut'
9. Change icon
10. Drag to taskbar.
I have't found decent EPDM icons yet. If anyone knows where to find them, please let me know.
Thanks again Arie.
The change worked great!
I found a EPDM icon in the following folder.
I used the AutoRun.exe icon.
C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Enterprise PDM\CardEdit.exe
