ProcessTamer / Re: Disable tray icon entirely (aka stealth mode)
« on: September 07, 2007, 11:37 AM »
I found a utility on Bitsum web site called MakeService. These are the steps I took for my test setup:
  • Install MakeService from Bitsum
  • Install ProcessTamer and configure it to not start with Windows
  • Use MakeService to create a Windows service to run ProcessTamerTray.exe
After this, the ProcessTamer utility ran without any tray icon at all. I didn't test it for extended period of time and didn't see what would happen after machine reboot but it might be something to try.

ProcessTamer / Re: run as a service?
« on: September 07, 2007, 11:31 AM »
there is no option for this, though you could use a 3rd party service-running tool to run it as a service.  im not sure what the benefit would be though.
I had a situation where I had to try this on a Windows 2000 Server using Terminal Services client. But the problem was that as soon as I logged off, the ProcessTamer tray utility also stopped working. So it was of no use. Then I tried Process Lasso 2.30 (x32 version) from Bitsum . But Process Lasso 2.30 wouldn't even work on Windows 2000 Server (works fine on Windows XP) and GUI would just hang with empty window (no values). So I uninstalled it after  installing/uninstalling a few times with no success. But then I found another utility on Bitsum web site called MakeService. These are the steps I took for my test setup:
  • Install MakeService from Bitsum
  • Install ProcessTamer and configure it to not start with Windows
  • Use MakeService to create a Windows service to run ProcessTamerTray.exe

Worked like a charm. I didn't test it for extended period of time but seemed to work fine when I tested it.
