@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

>>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.

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();
