Starting 2 instantiations of pwsafe from the Startup group, each with the -s database option, I need to be able to tell which is which in the system tray before I click either to enter the password for the first time. The Initial System Tray Icon option would seem to do what I want but has no effect.

After entering a password for the first time, the tooltip displays the database so I can easily tell, but before, the tooltip is just PasswordSafe for both instantiations.

I need to run 2 instantiations in order to keep company and private passwords separate.

I'm using V3.27 under WinXPSP3.

    This is not a bug but a feature request as what you want has never been implemented.

    This feature was added when Vista was released as Microsoft changed the colour of the task bar to black - the same as the PWS icon when no database was open. It only applies to when no database is open and it applies to all instances of PWS that may be running (when no database is open).

    Currently, all icons appear the same (subject to green - locked, red - unlocked) when a database is open.

    This would be a nice feature to have, is there a way to vote for feature requests?
