Ok, great... thanks. Installing Win 7 now.

Edit:
Ok, installed Win 7 64-bit and Process Tamer and it works  Kiss

As stated, I am currently planning to move to Win 7 64-bit. But, Process Tamer is one of my most important utilities, so I want to make sure it works before I make the move.

Please inform.

Edit:
54 people viewed this thread, and no one knows?
If you see this thread and are running Win 7 64-bit, please inform us whether it works or not.

Actually, I don't think there is a good way to do this. If you query your tray icon, you will get the answer that it is being shown (while it isn't). The tray icon won't 'flash' as you say.
No one will notice anything accept that your icon will move to the front. Once it's the first icon, it will stay there.

Regarding the crashing explorer, I think the only way to do that is to check Window's Event viewer. To be honest, I would call this overkill for such a small problem. Simply reinstituting the icon is quick, safe and easy.

I've also had this problem once with a customer. What I did to fix this was call Shell_NotifyIcon with NIM_DELETE and then NIM_ADD to force the reinstitution of the tray icon 60 seconds after my app started.

To be even more sure the tray icon shows up, do this every 3 minutes or so. This will help you with the situation where 'explorer.exe' has been killed and reloaded (after a crash).

Ok, I have a workaround.

I left the old ComCtl32.dll library in %system32%, and installed the Visual Studio Run-time redistributable package. This creates the new ComCtl32.dll (incl. manifests) in the %WINDIR%\WinSxS, where my apps can find them.

What I don't understand is why your app wouldn't work with a newer version of a Microsoft library. I thought all system libraries were backwards compatible(?)

Anyway, your app is awesome! I really notice a big difference (e.g., trying to do something else while compiling my projects or 7-zipping archives)

Ok, it was indeed ComCtl32.dll.

Your app apparently only supports an old version of ComCtl32.dll.

My Windows XP SP2 (incl. Visual Studio 2005 SP1) has ComCtl32.dll v6.0

I also found an older version of ComCtl32.dll (v5.82).

After I copied the old version (v5.82)to my %system32% directory, ProcessTamer worked.
When I returned my ComCtl32.dll library to the current (v6.0) it stopped working.

Unfortunately I can't use the old version, because some of my own projects need v6.0+ of ComCtl32.dll.

I installed ProcessTamer, but when I (try to) start it I get a message box stating:
