Windows 10 - Autostart MinimServer with Task Scheduler

RE: Windows 10 - Autostart MinimServer with Task Scheduler
When MinimWatch and MinimServer are running on the same machine under the same username, MinimWatch queries MinimServer to find out if MinimServer has a tray icon displayed. If MinimServer reports that it does have a tray icon displayed, MinimWatch doesn't display its own tray icon for that MinimServer instance. If MinimServer reports that it doesn't have a tray icon displayed, MinimWatch does display its own tray icon for that MinimServer instance.

This works well in most cases but unfortunately it isn't working when you start MinimServer on Windows during system startup and then login as the MinimServer username. For some reason, Windows is telling MinimServer that there is a tray icon even though there is no such icon displayed. This means that MinimServer is telling MinimWatch that there is a tray icon and MinimWatch is therefore not displaying its own tray icon.

You can work around this problem by adding the following option to your startup task comand:

--set watch.view=log

This tells MinimServer not to attempt to create a tray icon. With this setting, MinimWatch will display a tray icon for the local MinimServer instance.
