    Hi all.
    I have a sony VAIO that had vista preinstalled (Home Premium). I downgrade it on XP and now mptray is not working. Is it some driver issue? The same util works PERFECT on Vista
    Thanks

    Hi gmeles

    i'm not shure that this porblem is related to your os downgrade.


    i went from xp to vista (thanks ati for your awsome display drivers!!!:mad:) and did a clean install of MP 1.0.
    can,t get mptray working, since then.

    i worked before in vista and xp.

    no ideas whats going wrong :confused:

    Did anyone check that MPTray.exe was running, just hitting the install.bat registers MPTray to start on boot, it does not start the exe, so either click on the MPTray.exe file or reboot.

    BTW you should be using MPTrayMod, not MPTray, just checking :)

    Thank you for the quick answer.
    mpTray.exe is running on task manager.
    I made a couple of reboots with no success.
    I use mpTraymod

    Guys thanks for your time. Consider this fixed. I install Vista again and it works like a charm.
