I've have been inactive for a while, so this tutorial is quite dated. After installing ObjectDock on Vista (32 bit)today, I see that Stadock does not install the old 'sdmcp.exe' file with the stand-alone ObjectDock Plus v1.9 installer. Since the System Tray functions work after installing, I am assuming that it is no longer needed with the new code.jinxjx
I am not sure what you mean. You can create a system tray dock (either non-tabbed or tabbed) and any loaded tray icons should show up (at least they did for me in a test I just ran). You can alternatively show system tray icons on the left or right of a non-tabbed dock using the options in 'Dock Contents' category of the 'Dock Settings' (A.K.A. - ObjectDock Properties dialog).The DrumBone & dave-brombacher
I apologize for not keeping current and am glad you found an alternative. If needed, the options I will list below for 'jwo' should also work.jwo
You can use one of the following to create a system tray dock without using the system tray icon for ObjectDock (I am not sure why that is missing on your system).
1 - for a non-tabbed system tray dock, simply create a new dock via the 'My Docks' button (bottom left of any dock settings dialog). Once the dock is created, go to the 'Dock Contents' category and select the 'Display system tray icons along with my icons' and then select either left or right side in the drop-down menu.
Note - if you want just a system tray dock, simply drag the non-system tray icons off the dock and you will be left with a system tray dock. You can then use the dock settings dialog for that dock to customize the dock.
2 - for a tabbed system tray dock, create a new tabbed dock in 'My Docks' dialog > Right-click the new tabbed dock > Tabs > Add new tab > Add systray tab. Once the system tray tab is created, you can remove the other tabs using the 'Dock Settings\Tabs & Styles' dialog to leave only a System Tray tab, which can act as a drawer on the edge of the screen.
The rest of the modifications should work from the tutorial.
Good luck and have fun to everyone!
