PB on Win7 x64: No more tray icon after this week's updates?
March 12, 2010 06:14PM
Has anyone noticed that PBs tray icon has disappeared after this Tuesday's patches from MS?

I suspect that it might have been this optional update due to the fact that it addresses compatibility issues.

Did anyone notice anything similar?

I haven't noticed this, no, on Win7 x64 Ultimate.  What OS are you running?  And are you sure PeerBlock is running, or did it crash on you?

Lead developer of PeerBlock
Specifically, I'm running Win7 x64 Professional.

From what I can see in the task manager, PeerBlock is running despite the lack of the tray icon. I just have to run the executable again in order to invoke the GUI...
And strangely enough, the problem has resolved itself after my third reboot?

As well, I think it's worth noting that I'm using the task scheduler method method mentioned on the main site to do auto startup...

Perhaps he had it running in hidden mode?
w/ always hide tray icon enabled.

This is the same problem/annoyance that i'm having. The icon just disappears after having my computer on for a couple of hours. It's still running and blocking. I'm running Windows 7 32bit Home edition.
