Windows 7: Java Application and system tray

26 May 2010   #1

Java Application and system tray

Hi All,
we have a strange problem with System tray icon and windows seven.
The application need to create a system tray icon and add a message.
On XP and Vista the application work fine.
If the application run by console and the owner of java process is user logged in
the system tray icon is show and message compare (work fine)
if the owner of process is SYSTEM (get it s by task manager)
the icon of system tray is not show: no exceptions are catched and
the application run.

Thanks ALL.

Ghostshark, perhaps these are what you are looking for, otherwise I am not sure if I know what you mean:
How to Customize the System Tray in Windows 7
What’s new in Windows 7’s System Tray
Remove icons from the notification area (system tray)

Sassy, to download Java for 64bit (only if you are using 64bit browser, doesn't matter what your system is) go here: Which version of Java should I download for my Windows 64-bit operating system?
That is only for internet explorer, they do have others but you will have to search their site for "other browsers"

Did these solve any questions? Please explain more if I didn't cover it
