So as everyone must be knowing by now, Windows Vista removed quick access to the Ethernet connection icon from the sys tray. So on Windows Vista and 7, I use Network Activity Indicator. I don't need the blinking lights so much, I just need quick 1-click access to Network status window and Properties window of the Ethernet and wireless NICs. But when I open the Properties of any NIC from right clicking on NAA icon in the sys tray, the Properties button for TCP/IPv4 and TCP/IPv6 is grayed out. This wasn't the case under Windows Vista as this image illustrates:

This kinda makes it useless for me then. But if I open the NIC properties under Windows 7 from Network Connections folder itself, the Properties button isn't grayed out, it is fully functional. So anyone know what may be causing the Properties button to be disabled on Windows 7 when the Properties are opened from NAA icon right click? Or is it just a bug in NAA?

Impossible to run NT6 without third party fixes.

I'd expect that this is due to what account and/or priveledge level NAA is using. I'd try killing the process and re-launch it again as Administrator to see if the button is available.

Tried it, running it as admin still keeps the button disabled.:no:

Well good news. The developer of NAA replied to me that it seems to be a bug specific to 64-bit Windows and that he will fix it in the next version.
