Windows 7 tray icon issue

Hi guys,

Windows 7 doesn't show tray icons by default. (User must adjust tray icon bar settings).
Is there a way to do/force this programatically (API/Registry etc.)?

Any hints are appreciated!

It's at

"HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\EnableAutoTray"

Set REG_DWORD to 0.

Right click on the "Show Hidden Icons" and select "Customize Notification Icons". From the page, select "Always show all icons and notifications on the taskbar".
