I hope that tranglos is fine and that he will return soon to the forum.
Despite of his absence for a number of months I decided to register in the forum mainly for the same reason mentioned above by Lazy Moon:
I joined this site primarily to express my admiration for Echo.
Searching a long time for a satisfying clipboard manager I finally stayed with Ditto - until I discovered yesterday accidentally Ethervane Echo. It is an excellent program and I would like to thank its developer tranglos very much for giving us such a nice tool.
My happiness about the software is reduced only by one detail:
The icon of Ethervane Echo all the time disappears from the tray.
Let's resume other postings that reported the same problem:http://www.donationc....msg274101#msg274101
Here was a statement by tranglos (http://www.donationc....msg284457#msg284457
This (what shows up in the system tray) is entirely controlled by Windows, not by applications. All Echo does is instruct Windows to show its icon in the system tray, but it has no control over how it is displayed (icon, notifications only etc).
I'm not seeing the problem you describe on Windows 7 32-bit. Perhaps the 64-bit Windows treats 32-b it apps in this way, I'm afraid I have no idea.
That's a pity. And unfortunately I must say that I have Windows 7 32-bit
and the problem is existing here too. I have also tried both the installed and the portable version of Ethervane Echo. The tray icon disappears again and again.
In the Internet there are a lot of reports that Windows causes such an effect in connection with other software too. I will try to find and to test some Windows-based approaches and if I find a solution of course I will post it here.
