    @gdoodle : the first launch of a .net program is always a little but longer than normal.
    And for the ram usage, well, if you minimize the window, it uses less ;)
    (and the soft is in minimized mode most of the time ...)
    But I agree, It is not designed for too old computer.
    (P4 with 1go is not a good idea I think)

    It took at least 10 seconds just to show up in the system tray, and was using 50MB of RAM. I guess my computer is just old, but it is too heavy for me. Nice work though, I am sure for newer computers it does just fine.

    Nice program. Thanks for making portable. We light-weight portable users really appreciate that!

    QUESTION: Any command line entry to FORCE bill2's process manager to be minimized *if running a shortcut on our own*

    BUG: Latest version crashes on my XP SP2 after clicking "Performances and Statistics" button. Happens every time.

    Otherwise, perfect!

    Right, you've find a bug with the confirm option, I will fix it for the next minor release.

    For the inactivity delay, 5 seconds can be very dangerous.
    The 1 minute limit seems to be enough for every one.
    But you can override it: just edit manually the config.xml
    Search for the rule you want, then locate the XXXX
    The value is in milliseconds, so just use 5000, and the rule will for fine.
    (But there may be an error if you try to edit it again with the GUI ... not yet tested these case)

    edit @Stisev: there are command line options.
    Just add " -minimized" and it's ok :) (it's used to run minimized at startup ...)
    For the bug/crash you notice in Perfs/Stats Window, could you please send me a crash report, or contact me to give more details? Thanks.

    GUI works perfect so far and I'm not even using the auto option. Only bug is the confirm on close option. I have unchecked them all & it asks anyway.
    Tray icon animation is a moot point under sharpe shell. As long as I have one & it opens with a single click (though a choice for the static icon would be ever so nice, it's tiny and should imo be simpler and more colorful). Mercì I tried to use reshacker to change the icon but I may need more practice-lol
    Can not seem to get it to be a taskmgr.exe replacement but processx can still do that job for now. Nice update & lower on resources than processx. Better than ALL the rest.
    En réalité, une option unique et utile.
    The kill at idle works perfect! (5s) for a sheduled portable clamwin update bat file under jit.
