In Win7PESE, when switching to Admin, alot of programs end up in nirvana.
They are still loaded, but they no longer show any interface nor do they respond to their hotkeys.

I tried to set up a couple of programs as services and though they run fine, they do not show their tray icon nor do they respond to their hotkeys, even before switching.

How does M$Network and the volume-knob survive switching?

Just one of my semi-random ideas :ph34r:, mind you , but maybe they don't :unsure:, I presume they could well die but quickly resurrect :dubbio:

If they would die, they would be the only ones. All other programs survive in the sense, that they stay loaded, though are inaccessable.

I thought it was a service thing. But unless there's a secret service handshake the programs just don't know, i'm out of ideas.


:cheers:
