As I have no idea what might the problem be and most probably you too, so I won't expect any miracle here (well, honestly I do). But at least please tell me, any idea on how do I debug this problem? I'm on windows 7 64bit.
Are you getting any sort of error message when it crashes? Anything that can give me an idea of what is happening. (Although I am currently away from home so any updates my take a while.)
Nope, sorry, nothing at all. This is all I've got whenever starting up shybar on both 2.03 and 2.22:

I got it fixed by reinstalling visual c++ redistributable. I don't know how and when it went corrupt, but hey, it works!

Win 7 Home Premium (64)

Thank you. Excellent program. A couple of remarks:
1. Although the hotspot delay is set at 0 seconds, there is still some delay. If the response would be instant, it'd be perfect.
2. Clicking the about button throws this Microsoft .NET Framework error:

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Thank you. I will look into that. As for the slight delay, I'm pretty sure the code is already pretty tight there so I don't know if I can speed it up any more but I'll give it a try.

I use DisplayFusion to have my taskbar on all three monitors. Unfortunately, this on works for the primary monitor. Great app, though!

Thanks. Unfortunately, I cannot afford a multi monitor setup so I haven't been able to investigate how to get ShyBar working on extra displays.

As for Windows XP, I have not yet tested on that. If anyone does try it I hope you'll post your findings here.

This looks pretty nice, just what I need to remove the jarring white line at the bottom of my screen when I have dark BG. Is there anyway I could see the source Code?

Sorry for the late reply - I'm very busy with work.

I do not have the time to dig up the source but until I do you might want to check these pages out for the basic concepts involved:

CTrayIcon - System Tray Icon Wrapper - CodeProject
Finding the position and dimensions of the Windows system tray - CodeProject

Out of curiosity, why exactly do you want to see the code?

I generally like reading code, it's been a major resource in my learning. Also, I like to see if I can customise it it better fit my needs, or even just fix bugs I encounter.

Anyway, thanks for those links!

Okay I get you. When work slows down I'll see about finding my backups. Don't get too excited, probably won't be until the new year.
