Hi,

try reading the readme file that we have included.
There is a section about "services", this will help you.

So long

Well i must say that this suggestion is not so bad.
Yes I know that I can install it as a service but I only use xammp for testing. And installing as an service slows down my games for example because of high memory usage. And during work it would be a really nice feature to have it removed to the tray.
Well if you dont want to implement it, I understand it, but many users would be very thankful....

If you have it installed as a service, you can start and stop the service, and control whether the service starts up automatically on boot, from the Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Services applet. It's not quite so convenient as a tray icon, but it's not that bad.

Yes I know that.
I know it may sound annyoing to you, but I don't want to click the wohle time through my windows. I like to have a try icon at hand to do such things. But perhaps I am gonna develop something by myself....
I mean the command is simple: net [start | stop] service

Hi,

1. 2 Batchfiles with:
net start apache2
net start mysql

and

net stop apache2
net stop mysql

on your Desktop should do the trick.

2. If you really really want to have trayicons, there are Programs like "ApacheMonitor" which is in the bin dir of apache (also in the one of XAMPP).
And then There is something called WinMySQLAdmin.
Both go down to the Tray so you can start and stop the services.
Only works with services though!

So long
