Control Panel won't start minimized

Postby ijmc » 18. February 2014 11:20

Hello,

I'm using XAMPP 1.8.3-2 installed on our NAS box. The XAMPP Control Panel is accessed from several of the computers on our network, one with Windows XP (about to be upgraded to 7), the others with Windows 7; on most of them the control panel is set to start up with Windows. It has Apache and MySQL set to start automatically.

I have ticked the box that says "Start Control Panel Minimized", but whenever I start up my computer there is the Control Panel. It works, it starts Apache and MySQL and everything is fine, but I have to click X to get it to sit in the Notification Area instad of being visible.

Have I misunderstood what Minimized means? Or is it somehow not sticking? Whenever I open the Control Panel it has a tick with the Minimized option, so it is set to start minimized but it doesn't.

I've tried to Google the problem and also searched this forum but couldn't find anything similar. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks,
Ilke

Hi,

Minimized means it will get started in the background with an icon in the task bar.
This is running very well for me on my Windows 7 Ultimate x64 test machine.
But i don't have installed XAMPP on a NAS.

best wishes,
Altrea

Thanks for your reply, Altrea - yes I thought it should start in the background. If anyone has any idea why it starts opened up with me that would be great - from what you say it may be that it is run from the NAS box.

No.

I can just analyse and compare the information you gave us with informations i have from my own installation. NAS is one difference i can see.
You don't gave is much information so it is very common a different issue. Maybe the configuration change is not saved properly, or something else.
But without any detailed information that is impossible to say.
