#21 Won't start on Windows 2000.


Windows 2000: Initially missing msvcr90.dll, found it and all I see is the *.exe quickly open then terminate on my Task Manager/Processes list.

    Wow. Windows 2000. Uh. I'll see what I can do, I think I have a copy from an old laptop around here somewhere I can put on a virtualbox.

    It looks like there's a known bug in glib about this... I'll see if I can't find a workaround, but I wouldn't get your hopes up until they patch it upstream.

    Okay. Check the instructions at http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/googsystray/index.php?title=Installation -- unfortunately, you'll have to do this every time you update the software. I'll see if I can't automate the process in 1.2.x though. It replaces some of the gtk libraries with older ones that work with Win2k -- it shouldn't cause any problems, but it _might_ -- I went through the basic features and everything seemed to work though. There was also a minor fix for the registry, released as 1.1.4.
