I posted this a couple of days ago but seems to have disappeared?

I have upgraded to 5.0 and my projects will no longer open in the system tray - at least there is no icon to click on to open a project, even though I can see it is running in task manager.

Can you please download the updated version here:

Unzip the file and replace the old oe.exe file with the new one. Please let
me know how it works.

Have to go to the old menu to see the options? Not sure how to go back either.

Anyway, new version works on Windows XP pro, but not on Windows server 2003.

Need it to work on the server Oleg.

Many thanks,

Tony.

No. Options are available in the Application menu (click the top-left round button with Offline Explorer icon). I just wanted to see if the switch to the old menu helps or not.

Switch to the Ribbon is easy - in the View menu.

Regarding Windows Server 2003 - what exactly goes wrong?

Today I bought the upgrade to V5.0, and I can confirm that I?m also having the same problem: under Windows 2003 server, the "minimize to system tray" works, but the icon does not appear. This problem is no present under Windows XP, which works as usual.
Still I didn?t try to install the file indicated in Oleg?s post. I?m using the standard distribution file.

Regards,
Pablo.

I switched to another tray icon component and now it works well even under Windows 2000 Server. Can you please test this version?

Thanks Oleg,
