OpWiTra6 is a 32 bit program which puts an OpWiC6 icon in the system tray of Windows 9x to control OpWiC6. (As a 16 bit program, OpWiC6 can't directly use the system tray.) A left click of the icon will do one of three things: launch OpWiC6 if it wasn't running, hide OpWiC6 if it was visible, or make it visible if it was hidden. A right click of the icon displays a menu with those actions plus options to close OpWiC6, pause/unpause it, and of course to exit OpWiTra6. If Phil Burns' OpConfig program is in the same directory, the menu will also include an option to open that. The icon tooltip displays 'Launch OpWiC6' or 'Hide OpWiC6' when those are the left click actions. When OpWiC6 is running but hidden, the tooltip duplicates the OpWiC6 caption line.
OpWiTra6 is freeware. If you decide to use the program, the following applies:
This software is offered for use as is, and no warranty is stated or implied. The author is not responsible for any loss of data, damage to hardware nor any resulting loss of time or revenue resulting from the use of this program. Like all software, this program is utilized entirely at the user's risk.
Files in zip:
OpWiTra6.EXE The program. OpWiTra6.TXT This document in plain text. OpWiTra6.C Main source code. OpWiTra6.RC Resource script source.
There's no installation routine. Just put OpWiTra6.EXE in the same directory (folder) as OpWiC6.
When you start OpWiTra6, it builds and saves a command line for launching OpWiC6. Essentially the line is identical to what launched OpWiTra6 except OpWiTra6.EXE is replaced by OpWiC6.EXE. Any command line arguments thus will be used when OpWiC6 is launched.
As OpWiTra6 starts up, it normally launches OpWiC6 immediately, but this can be prevented by putting a z character (either case) as the first command line argument. This would be useful, for instance, if you wanted to put a shortcut to OpWiTra6 in your Startup folder so the icon would always be available for launching OpWiC6.
