Patters and practices

Hi All,

I am trying to write a tray icon process using c# before I do that, I
would like to know if there are any thing I should be aware of and is
there a block for doing this?

All this does it to listen to a queue or an xml file (not decided yet)
and when ever an entry is made it will start the download on the
completion, it will put the result back in a queue or in xml.

Thanks.

DBC User,
There is not much difference between what you describe as a "Tray Icon
Process" and any other executable aside from the fact that the Tray Icon app
is visible in the Notification Area and there are some additional semantics
involved such as having context menu items.

However from what you describe I think what you really want is a windows
service.

Don't you need to be an admin install/start and stop a windows service?
I want any user with no admin right to install and use this application.
