@jrk,
thanks, but I already created icon in Systray using Shell_NotifyIcon (the article introduces whole class for that). All I need is to know how to create popup menu whenever user right-clicks on the icon and where to process menu commands

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

>>All I need is to know how to create popup menu

That is covered in the sample also, which was the main reason for me to post it.

BTW, if you need another (MFC) sample on how to show a menu, take a lok at http://www.codeguru.com/shell/systemtray.shtml

Oh well, after an extensive lookup in the last sample I finally compiled code that I need to create and run popup menu:

      CMenu menu_bar;
      menu_bar.LoadMenu(IDM_POPUP_MENU);
      CMenu *popup_menu = menu_bar.GetSubMenu(0);
      assert( popup_menu != NULL );

      // Display and track the popup menu
      CPoint pos;
      GetCursorPos(&pos);

      this->SetForegroundWindow();  
      popup_menu->TrackPopupMenu(0,pos.x, pos.y, this, NULL);
      // BUGFIX: See "PRB: Menus for Notification Icons Don't Work Correctly"
    this->PostMessage(WM_NULL, 0, 0);

      menu_bar.DestroyMenu();
