Did you click on the arrow, it's not an "always show" notification icon unless you drag it out.

It disappears before possibly can. Shuts itself down almost instantly.

No error message? The only exit function is the right-click menu.

I will try again. But no message for me. Briefly shows the blue icon, then closes. By the time I open Task Manager it is long gone.

I just tested it in a Win 7 VM and it works fine. Do you have AV running and is that blocking it?

Just as a test, go into your network adapter and disable IPv6 and try running the program again. I believe it's failed on converting the gateway ip address which means it's to large to fit in an uint, which means it's probably an IPv6 address.
 


#34
All of .Net to 4.6 is activated.

IPV6 is enabled and working properly on my machine. Let's see if I disable....

Yup. exactly right. New build now works. I entered a name for the MAC address, however and it did not take all of it. Is that editable?

Renabled IPV6 and it failed again. Good call.

You would need to manually edit the profiles file. C:\ProgramData\Neemobeer\NetStatus\Profiles.inf
 


#36
Is there a character limit? No spaces? Need underscores? Right now it stops after 10 characters. The eleventh is a space.

When it reads the location it's space delimited, I can change it though.
 


#38
I can add underscores easily as well. I'll try that on the next build.

Hey Neemo;
That's a very cool little App you wrote there! :D I just installed it on one of my W10 laptops. Very nice! :cool: Thanks Rebop for requesting this!:) I have some little desktop gadgets for this from W8 gadgets & W10 gadgets, but they just show me how many bars the connection gets out of a possible 5 bars (like on your cell. phone), and the SSID name. This is cool because you get the SSID name, IP address, adapter type, and the Link speed. I think it will be very useful for troubleshooting customer networks, which is something I do almost daily.

I'll put in on my netbook too, and take with when next I'm out visiting Client sites and let you know how it works. Nice job! :up:

Thanks,
<<<BIGBEARJEDI>>>
