Network Activity Indicator on W7

5 posts in this topic

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?

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.
