Thank you very much, eager to try.

I need update Nvidia drivers to newest .28 beta cause .25 makes a black screen when I turn of my 2nd Screen (TV) and its same if I use the Nvidia CP to turn on and then off, dont happen all the time though.

Only ran it twice so far.

1st was fine with 2nd Screen enabled and then watched movie and then disabled.

2nd time was bad, as soon as I enabled 2nd monitor every item in my Sidebar apart from the clock went missing.

Trying to install it, but hangs about 80% way through validating.
I'm need to reboot, so I'll try it again after

Did this release consolidate Internet Explorer icons on the taskbar when multiple instances are open? Is that new?

jhuk, so far I haven't been able to reproduce this issue, my guess would be that this isn't related to UltraMon. Please try if you have the same problem when disabling/enabling the secondary monitor via Display Properties.

Patrick G., UltraMon taskbars don't support task grouping, but it will still work fine on the main taskbar if enabled.

There appears to be a bug in UltraMon 3.0.2. The bug is present on Vista x86 and Vista x64.

The problem is that UltraMon Options dialog can be opened several times simultaneously (by double-clicking the taskbar icon or right-click->Options).

Opening the UltraMon Options dialog more than once, and then pressing OK in any dialog causes a crash in Ultramon.

Otherwise, a great product!

Christian, I have already stated I can use the Normal Nvidia Method and its fine (apart from back screen going by to primary which was bug in a beta driver).

Ther is plenty of peeps here reporting Ultramon messes up Vista with Ghost items on screen and in running processes in the Task Mananger

I have just now messed up my complete Sidebar with it, it added 4 new processes to the Task Mananger and made the SidBar tunr black which I closed but it closed the Sidebar also.

For now I cannot use this app even after paying for it as Demo ran out, I will need use the Nvidia method to turn on/off TV.

I hope someday it will work fully on Vista becuase more and more users are going to use it esp after SP1.

Gerard, thanks for the bug report, should be fixed in the next release.

jhuk, I can't reproduce this issue, works fine for me on Vista. If you find out anything else let me know and I'll look into it.

Tray Icon isn't staying visible, it disappears. With the last release this wasnt a problem..
Christian Studer   2008-01-23 11:37
Matt, is UltraMon.exe still running when this happens? To check this open Task Manager and check if UltraMon.exe is listed under Processes.

Yes both ultramon.exe and ultramontaskbar.exe are both running.

Using Windows Vista Ultimate 64 I've started noticing that System tray icons are missing on boot up but th eprocesses are running. This was a problem in Windows XP though until recently not in Vista. I suspect, but can't confirm, that a Windows Update patch has reintroduced this problem.


Christian Studer   2008-01-25 12:20
If the icon isn't just hidden, my guess would also be that this is a Windows issue or something else. There were no changes in tray icon handling in the last couple of releases.

I guess it was only a two time thing. On every boot its there now. So no big deal
