#1051 open enhancement

change Windows start menu entry line

on a short user test on #cts4 we did find the problem in windows start menu to be very confusing:
start (no window) and start (restartable).
Rephrase the two entries to make a EASY choice for user.
Or remove one entry, which is the better choice.

Bump, agreed, this is horrible. And why do we have a 'window' anyway?

Ideal would be to use 'window' (i.e. wrapper) but without an actual console window. How do we do that?

The 'no window' ~= runplain, not restartable, should be removed.

If we enable desktopgui for windows, we have a system tray icon, and we don't need a console window. See http://zzz.i2p/topics/2122

The console is set with the -c option, but it's implicit, removing it doesn't help:

This talks about a console-less wrapperW.exe but there's no info on how to build it and it's not in the delta pack:

wrapperw.exe is in the standard and pro binary zips, so we'll have to build it ourselves, and I haven't (yet) found any docs on how to build it.
