Taskbar icon disappeared

Post by dr_hersh » Sat Jan 18, 2014 10:13 pm

While the process remains active, the program will close and not reopen regardless of whether it was minimized or closed. It will only restart from the directory where the program resides of the shortcut, but not from the taskbar. The Custom Notifications section also shows Vueminder, but no info underneath the name of the program. See image attached.

Thanks,
David

When you minimize VueMinder, the default behavior is to hide the taskbar icon and only show an icon in the notification area (task tray). Double-clicking that icon will make the VueMinder window re-appear. You can override the behavior so the taskbar icon is always visible. In the Program Options, check the box labeled "Always show task bar icon". It doesn't matter that there isn't any text below the VueMinder label in the Customization window.

Regarding the error message you're seeing when attempting to reinstall, this could happen if you deleted the temporary folder where Windows caches the installer (msi) files that were used previously. Microsoft created a tool to clean up these types of problems. It can be downloaded using the link below. You should be able to use this tool to uninstall VueMinder. After uninstalling, you should be able to reinstall.

I was unclear in my terminology. Yes, I meant the notification area. I understand the difference between how it should act when minimized or closed. Somehow, the problem has ceased, and has self corrected. In fact, the icon has also reappeared in the Custom Notification section. It's working now, so let me thank you for your time.
