It is a requirement for that program, yes. Whether that will make it work for you I can't say. But having it will not cause any issues either way. You may already have it.

If you get an error when you try to run this application, you probably need to have the Microsoft C++ runtime installed, which you can get get from the following link:

Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)
You did not mention an error though, just that nothing happened. A Guy

No, just install. If you already have it, no harm. If it doesn't help, no harm. Did you try to right click the exe and choose run as admin? (You shouldn't need to). Is your user an Admin?

I use Auto Hide Desktop Icons (And Taskbar) myself. But is click to show icons, then they hide themselves based on the time you set (3 seconds minimum). It may not serve your purpose.

Lol, you're welcome for the attempt, but don't think I helped in the end. As long as you have it back, we won't worry about the how
