With the "Place mIRC in tray when minismied" option turned on and using Windows XP Pro, the mIRC icon often fails to show in the tray (and it doesnt show in the 'show hidden icons' thingy b4 som1 acuses me of being stupid). The only thing i can do is end task on mirc.exe and then restart mirc.

THis happened with 6.03 also

I have the same problem with mirc 6.03 and windows 98 se... i used a script "ctcp *:SHOWME:*: { showmirc -rs }" and "/ctcp <nick> showme" from another copy of mirc to make it show itself again... it does the trick, but it's still annoying...

are you launching mIRC at windows startup? if so it could be getting executed before explorer.exe loads, and when that happens the taskbar can fail to display icons of running programs in the tray. that's not a problem with mIRC, but a problem of explorer not checking for any icons it should be displaying when it is launched, or perhaps there is no way for it to do this. if explorer.exe is crashing and being started again, it will also fail to display icons. try turning on the icon animation, as whenever icons that are not being displayed in the tray change, they tend to get displayed.

that won't make a difference as it sometimes just disappears when i minimize it to tray ("Always show in tray" setting is off). It definately aint explorer.exe's fault!

I think I've been having the same problem, but not with mIRC. Other programs. I think it's a Windows XP problem.

well it might be some conflict between windows and mirc... but i've NEVER had such problem with any other programs... only with mIRC.
