The issue is that when I start debugging my project (Visual Studio 2005, OS: Win XP), the internal web server (the ASP.NET Development Server) pops up a message announcing that it is there. I want to disable that message. I have tried right clicking on the start menu -> properties -> Taskbar -> Customize -> always hide. But a) the port keeps changing which makes the system think it's something new and I have to tell it to hide that one and b) for the current port it's using (4077), I have told it 4 times to always hide, but it still pops up. Is there some property someplace I can set to default all icons to be silent, just present in the system tray?
