onlinearmor system tray icons

Recommended Posts

Yes, this is an unfortunate bug in the way Windows 7 handles System Tray icons. The only workaround is to set Windows to never hide icons in the Notification Area.

@GT 500 , there are a few programs which allow themselves to be placed at the systray circumventing this bug. I wonder if it is a case of Win7 allowing only one istance of an icon from a program. But fortunately it chooses the regular OA icon to the green square. If there is anyway the green square could be made to operate as a separate portable version but dependent for input on OA perhaps?

hello, set windows to never hide icons in notification area, thank you :D

You're welcome. ;)

I wonder if it is a case of Win7 allowing only one istance of an icon from a program.

That is essentially what the bug boils down to. Both icons can be displayed when hiding of notification icons is disabled, but the system for hiding 'inactive' icons does not work right with a second icon created by the same program, so only the first icon can be set to never be hidden.

If there is anyway the green square could be made to operate as a separate portable version but dependent for input on OA perhaps?

Making a program that draws a green square isn't difficult. The issue is where it would get the data from. It needs to pull it from the memory of another process (specifically oasrv.exe), and since that is already being done by another process it might cause complications.
