Hello I have a bit trouble with bginfo in mode /TASKBAR when i start it starts in the taskbar and starts a POPUP
"bginfo.exe client.bgi /TASKBAR"


I saw in the forum that this guy http://forum.sysinternals.com/bginfo-on-windows-7_topic27723.html has the same problem. But there was no answer.

So I investigated a bit deeper.

The Beep and the Popup only appears if I hat a Custom Field with a WMI Query or a VB File in the *.bgi.

Do you have any hint for me how i can fix this?

Thx Marco

When I tested, I found that /taskbar implies /popup, at least in the current version.  The Sysinternals Reference (see my signature) says that /taskbar is used only with /popup.

Hello Aaron,

but when you have no custom fields (WMI or VB) the /TASKBAR option is working.
You can see that the POPUP appears for a short second and disappears.

That is a hint that you are right, but there seems to be a mechanism that the popup will be closed immediately.
Because I'm a bit helpless a I wrote a autoit-script with a workaround for that mechanism.

    $SCRIPT = "bginfo.exe client.bgi /TASKBAR /NOLICPROMPT /SILENT"
    Run($SCRIPT)
    $TITLE = "BGInfo"
    WinWait($TITLE,"",4)
    ControlSend( $TITLE,"","","!{F4}")

I'm seeing that too.  If the *.bgi contains definitions for custom fields (whether they are on the display or not), then the popup always appears.  I told Mark about it.
