Tray Icon Failure

by Guest on 2024/03/14 02:08:21 PM    
This is an error that shows since I first tested the software years ago, and I have used different distributions of windows 10 and 11.

The error displays the following when closing the program having it open from the tray icon, only after quitting another random program that was previously running in full-screen:

"Tray Icon Failure - The tray icon is not being displayed due to an error. Click OK to completely exit Tixati. Click cancel to continue using this program."

So if you choose OK the program shuts and if you choose to cancel then the program stays open and, at that point, if you click the cross in the corner to close the program, the same error pops up every time and if you click to minimize the program, it stays in the task bar and it won't go back to the system tray.

In summary, the program actually loses the ability to go back to the system tray after having whatever other program in full-screen shut.

I hope it makes some sense.

Thanks for reading.

I wanted to put an image of this error. As said I can trace this one since I tried this program and it can easily be reproduced within a few secs just launching and closing a full-screen application. I can do a video on it if you want a full demo. It is worth mentioning that there is a workaround which was posted in another thread some time ago, that involves making a .bat file containing:

@echo off
taskkill /f /im explorer.exe
start explorer.exe

And executing it after shutting a full-screen application.

But I really hope this can be fixed within the software and not resorting to this kind of maneuvers.

Just to add, I've seen this same error forever.  In my case, I use Remote Desktop to connect to the PC that is running Tixati, so I have always assumed it was related to that.  Since it's been there so long, I just learned to live with it.

I just installed the other regularly updated clients of qBitorrent and Transmission to test this behavior and they close properly, I hope devs can fix this.

Are you sure you checked the box in: Settings - Behavior - Show icon in system tray?
