    Hi

    Is anybody else having a problem getting BBC iPlayer Desktop v3.2.7 to run minimized on Windows 7 startup?

    On my computer it runs to an open window on Windows 7 startup, but I want it to run hidden to only an icon in the system tray like it used to?

    Thanks

    I have the same problem having loaded the latest version of i-player three weeks ago - before that it was OK. Even changing the startup parameter to minimised doesn't work as it appears reset each time my system is loaded. I don't have a problem with other programs in startup running minimised so it's definitely a BBC i-player fault. I've reported it but only got the standard BBC look at FAQs message.

    I've spent ages on this and I can't figure out a remedy - sorry guys, at least it's not only me - I can only hope that the BBC Development Team will rectify the problem.

    Hi!
    I am getting to the point of uninstalling this as I can't be doing with it starting on the desktop. I was very happy with it starting minimised.
    PLEASE, sort this out!

    I posted the thread to continue on the new forum here:

    because this BBC Message Board is about to close down.
