Windows 7: ehtray.exe icon unavailable in taskbar

04 Jun 2009   #1

Windows 7 RC1 Build 7100
ehtray.exe icon unavailable in taskbar

Usually this little icon is always in the taskbar when configured to as a way of accessing through right click EPG guide updates and opening Media Center, however it only appears when I run an update of EPG in Media Center and then disappears shortly thereafter. I'm running Windows 7 RC 7100, no other problems with Media Center or the actual process ehtray.exe, cause it IS running in task manager, it's just unavailable in task bar. I should also mention I did check my notification setting for taskbar and set it and eventually everything else to always show.

Guess I'm answering myself on this one...

I'm not 100% sure yet but it seems the Media Center Receiver Service or some other system component controls the start and stop of ehsched.exe (Scheduler Service) and ehtray.exe (Taskbar process) in Windows 7. It seems to have been recording all of my programs, so I guess developers phased out the independant running of said processes.
