Make the systray icon reappear

Postby HEAT84 » Mon Jul 26, 2004 7:09 pm

I'm sure you all know what happens to the Systray icons when explorer crashes or you reset it yourself. Some of the icons don't reappear, including WinMX's. I was wondering if there's a way to bring back WinMX's (and any other) icon without restarting my computer. I also wonder why some icons do reappear and some don't. Thanks

I have that same problem too, so I use a program called SysTrayX (http://www.xdesksoftware.com/systrayx.html), which recovers tray icons from a system crash. I've used other programs which claim to do that too, but they've never worked for me. Unfortunately, SysTrayX is Shareware, so you'll either need to buy it, or get a cracked version of it. I can send you such a version if you want. It can act a bit tempermental, but it works. I may even look for a better crack myself.

This might be silly, but ever try loading home page and enter view to regain sys tray, or right click in the open and get it back there? Sometimes the biggest problems have the simplist solutions.

The icons that reappear are from programs that are trying to avoid that bug in Windows so they recheck every so often if they're still in the tray. So unless WinMX modifies itself to do that you'll have to find some fancy pants solution, but you shouldn't need to reboot your computer. At the most you'd have to kill winmx and relaunch it.

Yeah I meant to say restart WinMX not my computer.

Huh? Is home page a program?

I think he meant "load up the program while it's still running".
[code:1]char str[20];
scanf("%19s", &str);
if (!strcmpi(str, "Hello, world!"))
printf("Hello, programmer.\n");[/code:1]

The only way is for the developer to integrate functionality into their app, or for you to use one of those tools mentioned earlier - sorry.

is your problem that you had winMX 'hidden' in the systray and then the system crashed, and you were not longer able to find it even though winmx.exe was still showing up in the task manager?
or were you still able to see the main window, and when you clicked hide it just dissappeared?

I guess I should have said I'm now using SystrayX and my problem is solved. Thanks though.
