Program options
« on: July 22, 2014, 06:28:52 PM »
Hi everybody,

I'm new using WeatherLink with Virtual VP and Virtual Weather Station. I want to know if WL can run at windows start on Vista and if it can run hidden (minimized), just like VVP and VWS ?

Thanks,

Éric

The shortcut in the start menu works fine with VirtualVP. However, how do you minimize it or tray it ?

I just hit the minus button.  WL runs whether it is full screen or not.

I hardly see it.

I downloaded RBTray for those who are interested. A launch at startup and a right lick on the minus button of the window tray WL and you see the icone to make sure it is running ;-)
