That was my suspicion. And it seems if it is *not* working, adding the AppID to the shortcut helps. But I've also seen it work with shortcuts that *don't* have the AppID set. So I can't say definitively that the AppID is required.  So for now I guess it's just a helpful hint if things aren't working. And we know multiple ways to add the ID. 
Since addpm  is still documented as the way to add shortcuts, it would be good to enhance it to add the AppID to the shortcuts it creates.

So you are saying that if the shortcut in Start Menu doesn't have the
AppID, then Emacs started from that shortcut will not be able to be
pinned correctly, i.e. the pinned taskbar shortcut will not have the
AppID property?
