FAQ wrote:Q3. Can I setup Poptray to run in a multi-user environment?
I´ve noticed that PopTray is not available from user's Start menu if it was installed as Administrator. So, it is not possible to change the the command line's shortcut because it does not exist!

The installer should create the shorcuts in "All Users", "Default User" or equivalent profile.

Is it possible to detect the first user run and ask where he wants his own ini files and save it in the registry?

(I suppose that the path is only for .ini .ptdat .ids and .log while .wav and .ptlang are still picked from installed dir)

I know that this is more like a feature request, but I think that the answer A3 is not for a mean user (or "utonto" as ilNebbioso said in other topic).

It seems to me that it's not PopTray that has to be changed for this purpose, but the Installer.

Since PopTray stores mostly personal information, I don't think the shortcut should go in the "All Users". When multiple people use the same computer, you don't want someone else PopTray to open when you startup.

Poptray keeps checking and/or poptray hangs

The answer should be somthing about the connection timeouts.
