How to hide the startup VI from taskbar

Solved!
Go to solution

Hello,

I want to hide exe file from taskbar. I have designed the startup Exe for my VI. So that, whenever computer restart, exe file will be launch. But, unfortunately, it is not getting hide in taskbar. I have already configured the .ini file as below.

 

[SpareAlertV1.0]
HideRootWindow = True
UseTaskBar=FALSE
server.app.propertiesEnabled=True
server.ole.enabled=True
server.tcp.paranoid=True
server.tcp.serviceName="My Computer/VI Server"
server.vi.callsEnabled=True
server.vi.propertiesEnabled=True
WebServer.Enabled=True
WebServer.TcpAccess="c+*"
WebServer.ViAccess="+*"
DebugServerEnabled=False
DebugServerWaitOnLaunch=False

 

 

Could anyone help me about how to hide the file from taskbar.

Thanks in advance...

Did you do both (hide the vi and also use the *.ini command)?

 

I fiddled around with the example here and got it to work (see attached).

 

However, when I put the exe in the startup folder with the ini file, they both ran at startup (the ini was automatically opened with notepad). Not sure how to get around that.

Dear Dave_St,

                      This is what I expected. Thank you for your valuable help. 

 

But, however notepad is opening on PC start up.

Maybe you could put the exe and ini in a folder and put a shortcut to the exe in the startup folder

Yes. Its working fine. There is no pop up notepad. Thank you. 

and one more thing....

My application is, VI will continuesoly monitor the temperature of one machine. It should give the pop up window at particular time...?Is there any way to display VI at primary window, even if we are doing somework on PC. ?
