Hi, how can I do automatic program update from system tray. I set update in specific time, but update not function if program is in system tray.
<pre> WindowState = FormWindowState.Minimized
        If Me.WindowState = FormWindowState.Minimized Then
            NotifyIcon1.Visible = True
            Me.Hide()
            NotifyIcon1.BalloonTipText = "Hi from right system tray"
            NotifyIcon1.ShowBalloonTip(500)
        End If


What I have tried:

WindowState = FormWindowState.Minimized
       If Me.WindowState = FormWindowState.Minimized Then
           NotifyIcon1.Visible = True
           Me.Hide()
           NotifyIcon1.BalloonTipText = "Hi from right system tray"
           NotifyIcon1.ShowBalloonTip(500)
       End If

Instead of putting the app in the tray and having it run all the time, why not use the Task Scheduler in Windows to run your update app at 06:00 every day? That way, you aren't clogging up the machine at all ...
