Build Taskbar Overlay (2013)

A watched pot never boils, and a watched Atmel Studio project never finishes compiling. Since I don't enjoy sitting around and waiting, I made a basic Windows-7 only extension for Atmel Studio to add in a progress bar animation and icon overlay on the Windows Taskbar when a project is compiling, or finished (with errors, no errors or warnings).

Multiple icon themes are selectable in the extension options.
