FW: Registry key for DisableTrayIcon
Thu Feb 6 15:21:01 2003
I'm using TightVNC 1.2.6, and have the registry path & key value set
Do I need a more up-to-date version? Given that I was told this information
when I downloaded TightVNC back in September last year, I would have thought
it accurate & that it should still work now.
Someone please help me before I tear all my hair out in frustration!

"DisableTrayIcon" works with TridiaVNC, TridiaVNC Pro and TightVNC. If
I recall correctly, it is not supported by RealVNC. You will need to
get the registry branch (path) right as well.
"1" *is* the correct value to prevent the appearance of the tray icon,
however, you have to have a build/distribution that supports that
