  • Show icon permanently in System Tray

    I have a custom app which I deploy to my Win7 users, but when installed, the app sets up a tray icon which is hidden by the OS. The user then has to manually change the settings of the System Tray to always display my app's icon.

    What can I do when installing my app on Win7 to make the icon show in the System Tray without user-intervention? Thanks.

    Set it manually and watch what changes are made to store this updated setting using Process Monitor.
