Think of PanelPro not a program but just a menu page and one of those items is the roster or DecoderPro.

DecoderPro shortcut is really just a way to go right to the roster program without opening the PanelPro menu first for those that don't use the many other options of JMRI.

BTW: there is a JMRI group you should join.   It will offer more help related to JMRI...
