Question Setup Preview in Taskbar

All of the programs and opened files have a preview when you hover the mouse on their icons inside the taskbar.

But for inno setup installers it seems there is no preview. any fix or trick to solve this issue?

This executable displays the correct thumbnail only on the autorun page.
The autorun page is possibly a CustomForm and only after the WizardForm is displayed and the thumbnail stops showing.

Inno Setup has a main window in full screen (Optional). This window is shown in the taskbar thumbnail by default.
I don't think it is possible to display WizardForm in the taskbar thumbnail.
To better understand, put this in the [Setup] section of a simple script.
Code:
WindowShowCaption=True
WindowStartMaximized=False
WindowResizable=True
WindowVisible=True

Yes, you're right,

but see this one:
https://web.archive.org/web/20150523...ISSkinPack.exe

It also has a preview on all pages (even if it is not full) but I think better than a blank view. How to implemet such a trick?

about the previous setup, yes it has preview on autrorun page, but on some other pages the preview again will be visible !!!
