Displaying WampServer 2 Tray Icon in Windows 7 on Boot

I have always had a workaround for displaying WampServer 2 tray icon on Windows 7. This might be irrelevant to some of you but I prefer to put the server Offline or online at will and the fastest way of doing that is to click on the small tray icon. Today, I found an easier way of showing the tray icon by combining one line of command in a batch script. Here is what you should do:

  1. Install WampServer 2
  2. Click on “Start Icon” ¬†> “All Programs” and right-click on “Startup¬†->Open“.
  3. Create a new file, call it “wamp.bat” (You can name it anything you want as long as you include the .bat) and put the following without the quotes (“start C:\wamp\wampmanager.exe“).

Now any time you logoff or restart your computer, the tray icon should come up.
