Your script is completely goobered. Look in the help file for how select works.

What is the point of:?


Until GUIGetMsg() = -3

Also when posting there is a button on the edit bar to nicely drop in autoit script.

Your Do...Until Loop is blocking the buttons from being activated, get rid of it because it isn't necessary because you already have a While loop in there.

Your Select isn't doing anything because you used it wrong, you need to use Case with Select, not If. Something like this:

         Case $msg = $EzIcon[1]
         Case $msg = $EzIcon[2]
             GUISetState(@SW_MINIMIZE, $hGUI)
         Case $msg = $Button1
         Case $msg = $Button2
             MsgBox(0, "Important Contacts:", $chars)
         Case $msg = $Button3
         Case $msg = $Button4
         Case $msg = $Button5

EDIT:Almost forgot, get rid of the _Exit() call before the While loop when you delete the Do loop, otherwise it will run your script and then close because of it.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
