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?
