I use a Windows XP SP2 based laptop to exclusively stream multimedia content between my laptop and my HD TV using the IOGEAR GUWAVKIT4 1080p computer to HD display kit. Until recently, I have only been problem free and satisfied.
All the driver and application software (current) has been installed and the wireless connection is established. An application called SGFXConfig (Viewspan) is used to establish the parameters of the connection between the transmitter and receiver. It is critical for the operation of this hardware combination. When this application is started, whether automatically during Windows startup (default) or manually, it by default minimizes to the notification area of the taskbar where the user clicks it to access the application.
What has started happening lately, is as the application minimizes, it disappears. It is no where to be found in the notification area. I can see it swoosh down to the area, and a bubble shows up saying something to the extent of "Click here for settings." But there is no icon. Hide unused icons option is unchecked, so all icons should show. In task manager, the process shows as active.
So, how can I ensure the icon is kept accessible in the notification area, or what option might be available to prevent it from going to the taskbar all together. (Don't really understand why this application needs only be accessed by the notification area?)
Thank you in advance to all those that may have some direction for me.
