About This File

This is @Yashied's most excellent control viewer, modified by me, based on the code @boomingranny posted.

There are 2 forum entries, one shows active and the other depreciated, and not seen @Yashied since March 2016, so I feel is OK to post this, tho, i'd take it down upon request.

PS: Do run as Admin if available, as it may not do what you need without the rights

be aware that enabling "UI Automation" investigation
may crash some executables, SciTE was one in my tests
( but users in the forum could no replicate the crash ).

added "Save to INI" instead of registry ( if "CV.ini" is found in the same folder, it will save there )

Corrected minor stuff and added options to the context menu

What's New in Version 0.2018.12.16
..just realized that there was a boo-boo in my code.
Changed TrayIcon $TRAY_EVENT_PRIMARYDOUBLE to $TRAY_EVENT_PRIMARYUP . as the DClick is on 2nd press and not the 2nd release, so the easiest fix it to just 1 click on the way up.
Added a notification for when the script is loaded again while hidden and on the tray, to restore itself and behave as expected.
