Hi, I have this program installed on my Windows 7 and just tried to install it on my XP.  The installer worked fine (same as any other installation procedures), but I don't see the H icon on system tray even after reboot.  Anybody know how I can get it to work?
Thanks

When autohotkey is installed, does it put startup shortcuts into the Program folder of the user that installed it? If so, try moving it the All Users folder equivalent

On my XP %USERPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\Startup folder, I have a .AHK script that runs. It shows the H in the task bar, as you mention. Maybe you have to copy your .AHK file to the startup folder, too?
