Systray icon sometimes disappear on Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hello All,

     

    I have an application that works fine on Windows XP. The application displays a sys tray icon. The application is launched automatically on user logon.

     

    On Vista, the icon sometimes appear and sometime it does not appear while the application is running.

     

    I have tried a couple of workarounds, like defining the following registry key:

     

    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\Policies\Explorer\NoTrayItemsDisplay

     

    to 0x00, but it still disappears on some re-boots.

     

    The application that shows the systray icon runs from a scheduled task that starts the application upon login.

     

    Please guide me regarding possible cause of this problem and fix for this issue.

     

    Thanks,

    Anas.
