Running SQL 2005 Service Manager on Windows 7

If you install SQL 2005 Service Manager (Vista) on Windows 7 (the Vista version is required as it supports UAC) you will find that the system tray icon is hidden by default as part of the tidy up of the taskbar and notification/system tray area in Windows 7. You can customise the behaviour for a specific application by left clicking on the small triangle in the system tray area and clicking on the Customize... link as highlighted below

This will bring up the Notification Area Icons dialog and allow you to select the behaviour for SQL 2005 Service Manager which you can set to "Show icon and notifications" if you want the system tray icon for SQL 2005 Service Manager to remain in the system tray area at all times as shown below
