TrayTips and XP

7 posts in this topic

Is there a setting that I'm missing?

This makes 3 XP systems that do not show TrayTips:

...or is my senility just showing thru again?

Thanks for your quick reply.

The code is anything that uses TrayTip.

Here is a sample:

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...st&p=321799

TrayTip works for me, but not for the person in this thread:

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...st&p=321947

and not for the person in this thread:

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...mp;#entry321020

and not for a coworker of mine...

...so, I was just asking the group if something had changed within XP - maybe one of the patches... or maybe there is a setting that has been changed within XP that turns off TrayTips...

Anyone know?

Thanks for the data point - I could not find a setting within XP Pro SP2 that would turn TrayTips on or off so I tested that same coworker's system by logging in as another user - TrayTips worked fine. Then when the coworker logged back in - they would not show again. The coworker has created a new userid (and thus a new profile) and that has solved his problem via a troublesome work around. I just found it odd that this came up in the forum for 3 people in just a matter of days. I could not find a bug report on it pointing to the OS vs AutoIt - hence my new topic.

Oh well, we will keep an eye out for more XP users that cannot see TrayTips - I fear that it is some simple setting that I've forgotten all about and will feel silly when I told what to change.

herewasplato, don't know if you're still looking for an answer, but check out http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...kb;en-us;307729 . I think you can also disable/enable tray tips with tweak tools like MS's TweakUI: they have a setting under "Taskbar & Start Menu" for ballon tips.

Thanks for the link - I cannot believe that I missed the setting within MS Tweak UI - it toggles the say DWORD that the KB article references. Unfortunately, I no longer have access to the system that had the issue, but I'll point to this thread in those other threads.

Thanks again,

MSP
