Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Actually i did finished after a couple of hours like i wrote, but forgot to upload it
I'm attaching a compiled version to this post, and here is the source code if anyone is interested:
GitHub - ohadts/fixedResolutionSysTray: This app will make sure that your computer will always stays with your chosen resolution and screen frequincy. This is useful if you have a crappy kvm with no/corrupted EDID reading. This time with tray icon and multi monitor supprt

Everyone is welcome to download or to explore/improve the code.

This version have several nice improvements:
Systray icon
-you can configure your resolution from the systray instead of writing in some text file
-you can close the app from the systray instead of killing it from the task manager
-you can pause and resume the app from the systray

Multi-monitor support
In the app settings (again, from the systray), you have list of all your active monitors. from there you can:
-specify if the app is enable or disable for each monitor
-specify a custom resolution for each monitor

And also i switch over to some sort of other technical solution to do the resolution change, which suppose to be more robust solution then the previous one. I really hope this feature will do the trick and solved some issues people encountered...

How to setup:
Lunch the app. A new systray icon will appear with red line on it - meaning the app is paused, and it will start paused until you'll go into the settings (right-click on the systray) and configure your resolution and refresh rate. Configure, click "save and exit" and that's it. From now on the app will lunch unpaused, and behave normal.
If everything working fine, find a way to make the app lunch on windows startup for convenience. If not, try to run the app with administrative privileges.
