ShowIcon (installation component)

IT Asset Management (Cloud)

Command line | Registry

ShowIcon influences visibility to the user on the computer device being inventoried:
  • When set to True, ndlauch displays an icon in the system tray when it is installing a package. This icon displays, regardless of the value of the UserInteractionLevel (installation agent) preference. If this icon is double-clicked and UserInteractionLevel (installation agent) is set to Status or Auto, the progress display toggles from being hidden to being visible.
  • When set to False, no icon will display.
Tip: On modern versions of Windows, this preference affects FlexNet Inventory Agent when it is being executed by a particular user account. When (as is normal) the inventory is being run by the local SYSTEM account, no icon is visible in the system tray.


Values / range

Boolean (True or False).

Default value

No registry default. If no value is supplied, the behavior depends on UserInteractionLevel. Where this is Full, the behavior is equivalent to ShowIcon=False; and otherwise the behavior is as for ShowIcon=True.
