Possible issue with Windows XP SP2 and FreeRAM XP Pro
On a small minority of systems, installing Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Windows XP will result in the FreeRAM XP Pro tray icon not showing up properly when starting with Windows. The number of Windows XP SP2 systems affected appears to be a relatively small percentage, and it is not known what system factors cause this issue on affected computers.
If you experience this problem, there is currently no sure fix, but you could try:
* Enabling the troubleshooting tray icon option, on the last tab in the Settings window, to delay the tray icon by a certain number of seconds ("Delay tray icon by ... seconds")
* Disabling automatic startup with Windows, and moving a shortcut to the FreeRAM XP Pro program file into the Startup folder of your Start Menu.
* Disabling automatic startup with Windows, and starting the program manually once Windows has finished loading
All of these are only potential workarounds, and are not guaranteed to work.
