Windows 7: Action Center Settings

Action Center Settings

I created a program (on my win 7 32 bit) to change the settings for the action center. Works great! However, I tried to run it on a 64 bit win 7 machine and nothing works. What the hell is up with this?

How do I change the action center settings in the 64 bit version using the registry? I know the key location, but the settings of the keys does not work. Help.

The Action Center Settings. The flag that is display in the task tray. So far from what I have found on the web the action center settings are placed in the registry under HKCU\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\actioncenter
However, GOOD F>>ing luck on changing these because apparently these are set according to each individual machine. In other words, changing these on my machine will not work on your's and your's will not work on someone else's.

Great, not sure what to do now since I am trying to create an app that will set these for computer non-savy individuals.

How to Change Action Center Settings
Hello, I hope you are doing well. I think the Action Center is not too bad, so I'd rather have it running. However, is there any way I can not have the icon show up in the system tray unless there is a suggested action that I should take? Thank you, Vic

Windows Action Center icon is always visible in the system tray. In the beta versions it was visible only when there were some messages in it and used to go off when all the problems were solved / no probs. In the RC builds I can see the icon always visible even when there are no messages. Any...
