TrayTip on Vista

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I can't get the TrayTip to work on Windows Vista.

Is there any dll you can use to show one of these Balloon Tips in Vista?

I've seen THIS POST but it relly did not answer my question.

I have the Balloon tips on. I've even changed the registry to have Balloon tips enabled.

I use Windows Vista Ultimate.

TrayTip works fine for me using Vista with AutoIt3.2.4.9

You do need to have the tray icon visible and the script needs to continue to execute to see it. Post some code of usage if you have further problems.

:whistle:

I tried this code:

TrayTip("TrayTip", "Here is some text", 10)
Sleep(10000)

And i did not compile it.

Nothing shows up.

Not sure what is going on with your OS but your test code is working for me. :whistle:

I see the tray tip balloon appear for several seconds.

I can't belive what's wrong.

The tray tips works for Orb, and Windows Defender because i've turned of UAC.

Anyway, i guess i have to make it without TrayTips :lmao:

Wild guess: I don't have vista, but TrayTips + Always On Top for the taskbar don't seem to fit well. At least I had problems on 2003 Server. After removing the ontop-ability, I could see the tip... Maybe it's the same case here?

This code works.

But I have a bit different problem. The TrayTip works, but after I turn the tray icon off and on, the TrayTip does not show. Any clue?

Thanks!

Hello Sippeangelo,

I found the solution for you and jjj. I was having the same problem with TrayTip not working in Vista with UAC turned off. I mentioned this to a co-worker and he told me about a registry hack. Thank Dave.

I did a web search on "FD6905CE-952F-41F1-9A6F-135D9C6622CC" and found this explaination:

http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/vista...mptBehavior.htm

<<< Bonus Registry Hack - Turn off the notification that you disabled UAC

If you use the Control Panel or the Local Policy to control the UAC then you get a notification to warn you that the UAC has been turned off. What this registry hack does is disable that notification box.

Launch regedit and navigate to:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{FD6905CE-952F-41F1-9A6F-135D9C6622CC}

You have two choices, either disable or delete. If you go for the disable, then you could rename the key, for example {FD6905CE Notify}. >>>

Note: I just renamed mine to {FD6905CE-952F-41F1-9A6F-135D9C6622CC}-original

As always, be careful when editing your registry.

After you reboot your system, TrayTip should work.

Good luck.
