Pin Shortcuts to Taskbar / Metro?
I have a program called IRSSI, a command-line IRC client, that runs from a batch file or Windows Command Script. I can't pin these on the Taskbar or Start screen, neither can I do this with shortcuts. Dragging the file on to the taskbar comes up with a not allowed symbol. Any idea how to do this?

Is it taking some kind of parameter, can you chuck them in to the end of a shortcut?
There does appear to be an exe, would this work? Irssi - The client of the future

Never mind, found a solution, It only likes applications so reference the interpreter directly ie:
in a shortcut then you can pin that to the taskbar by dragging it on to it, just tested it here.
C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /K "C:\Users\J\Desktop\test.bat"
