I made a standalone EXE using the Application compiler (R2017a). I selected custom icons, however the figure icon and taskbar icons are still a Matlab icon. I've seen various posts indicating that this is required by the MCR license. However, another annoying feature is that the EXE cannot be pinned to the taskbar. Rather, upon closing the EXE the pin will just link to Mathworks website.
These issues (as well as the bad splash window timing, which makes it look like nothing is happening for a while after opening) have been reported since 2010: https://blogs.mathworks.com/loren/2010/11/18/deploying-standalone-applications/
Is Mathworks ever planning on addressing these? It seems a "Built with Matlab" stamp and link to website in a splash screen should be sufficient for licensing.
I have seen this link but it does not address the taskbar and figure icons: https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/101376-how-do-i-associate-a-custom-icon-with-an-exe-compiled-with-the-matlab-compiler-4-0-r14
Am I just missing something or are these real limitations?
