Scheduled task running at system startup and showing a UI

P: n/a
I have a C# program that is scheduled to run at system startup. When a user
logs into the machine, how can I show a status screen of the running
application? I tried with a NotifyIcon but the icon does not show in the tray.

DJMonte,

How are you using the NotifyIcon? How is it starting up? Can you give
a little more information?

Nothing special with the NotifyIcon. It works when I run the program while
logged in. But if I schedule it to run at system startup, reboot, and login
as the same user it is running under, it does not show up in the tray. With
task manager, I can see the process is running, I just can't get to the UI.

Is there something else I need to do, or is there a better way to do this
other than the NotifyIcon?
