    I have a problem with MPtray. It only rarely lets me start MP. The only sollution is opening MP config first and deactivate and active MPtray.
    After that MPtray keeps working. But when I restart my pc I have a chance of 1 in 10 (i'm guessing) that it still works.

    In the configuration log is mentioned that MPtray wasn't running yet (see attached log).
    Is there any way to force MPtray to start?

    Bump.

    Even after resume from standby Mtray doesn't work anymore.

    Am I the only one using this function or having this problem??
    Funny thing is, this is an issue that plagues me for months. In the meantime, even windows has been re-installed but the problem keeps coming back.

    This is definitely unique to yourself, the only time i have had anything like this, is when MP or more likely codec\plugin has caused MP to crash, but its still showing in taskmanager, so it will not allow restart as its still running, but you are saying MPTray is not running at all, which is really weird, would need full logs collected after such failure using the debug mode option 3.

    Re: MPtray not always working

    Argh, cant seem to reproduce it right now. Before you posted I added MPtray.exe to de startup folder of Windows.
    Removed it again for testing, but as mentioned: I cant reproduce it at the moment. Maybee I inenvertitly fixed it :).

    But the problem will probably return today or tomorrow, then I'll post the logs.

    In 1 whole day, and not one time did the problem occurs. Seems strange, but the problem seems to be fixed. HTPC went to standby multiple times, some forced by me and some by the powersheduler.

    Only thing I did was start mptray.exe manually through the mp install folder (not through the configuration) and placed mptray.exe in the startup folder of Winxp. Removed it from the startup folder again after a reply on this thread.

    Have no explanation why, but but it's working again. So I'm happy.

    It was just a matter of time, the problem reoccurred. This time I immediately created a full log (attached).

    Some more info: my pc automatically went standby last night due to inactivity (via Powersheduler++), MP was still running at that time.
    Woke the system up this morning, closed MP because I had to do something outside MP. When I tried starting MP with my remote but it didn't start.
    Opened task manager and looked up mptray.exe. This procces wasn't running anymore.

    The problem seems to be inverted. Before mptray was running 1 out of 10 times, now is running 9 out of 10 times :).

    Bump. Still have this problem most of the times after resuming from standby or after the pc restarts.

    (Updated MP to 1.2 RC btw)

    Solved it by using Eventghost instead of MPtray to start Mediaportal. Works like a charm.
