Iconize - Minimize Apps To The System Tray

#1 Post by Replika » Thu Feb 01, 2007 5:38 am

Features:
? Can Dock Any Windows applications to the System Tray.
? All Applications are restored to their previous states when "Iconize" exits.
? If the Internet Explorer shell crashes, Iconizer will rebuild all your icons for you.
? Simple right click menu allows you to select any running windows application to be docked.
? Double click your programs System Tray Icon to restore the program.
? A Simple two mouse clicks will dock any program.
? Ability to Minimize, Maximize, Restore, or Close all applications at once.
? Double Clicking the System Tray icon will minimize all applications for you.
(Great for WinNT, which doesn't have "Show Desktop"!)
? Program Updating is super easy, free, and built in.
? Tip: its a good idea to minimize your application before Iconizing it.

Have you ever tried Minimizer-XP (http://www.totalidea.com/files/mini-xp.zip) ? I think this program is more convenient by creating an minimize- to-tray icon to the title-bar.

The program writes setting to registry but i have created a laucher for it ;)(sourcecode's included): http://www.orbitfiles.com/download/id1248338519

Old topic update: TP109 reported (http://www.vleadtek.com/?id=1176#comment30501) that Iconize v2.0.0.5 is nowhere to be found, even at Softpedia.

The Wayback Machine still has a 2007 snapshot of it at web.archive.org /web/20070227013643/http://brooksyounce.tripod.com:80 /downloads/bysoft/Iconize_Installer.zip -- but I'm afraid that's an older version (untested!).

The motive for my suspicion is the fact the changelog there ends at v1.0.0.7, dated 2004-06-16: check web.archive.org /web/20071104014833/http://brooksyounce.tripod.com:80/versions/Iconize.htm.

BTW, the old mirror at SnapFiles (http://www.snapfiles.com/get/iconize.html) is 404, too.

I managed to get Iconize v2.0.0.5 from a single source and as Virustotal declares the executable inside the archive to be entirely kosher (see below), I mirrored it to https://mir.cr/MFXOYEQE.

I was able to track down thanks to alert user TalkOrBell, who pointed me to this link: http://www.pc-infopratique.com/telechar ... og-67.html

This is unfortunately only version 2.0.0.3, but it worked fine under Windows 7 32-bit.

Download this file I was able to open the installer with 7zip and get to the core files:

You're looking for version 2.0.0.5? Here it is: Iconize 2.0.0.5.rar :D

Unfortunately I'm not getting anything on VirusTotal - no recognition for either the RAR file or the included EXE.

EXE: 1A437077C1D90F3BE335303EA8CD0BAD06AEB58F76805922DD2D43E19C10B834
RAR: 4E489EDE2E46259C0D10C10227D1E74C658FF893B5B1189119ECD770BA6DC581

As it's a somewhat old file, I'd expect it to have some kind of registry in that database so I can't test those out.

I found a copy of 2.0.0.5 at https://ccm.net/download/download-1909-iconize. Appears to be a legitimate site. VirusTotal did not appear to find fault with the download.

Both the file and it's contents are listed as "undetected" meaning it has no reputation at all. I also would not trust this version.

No problem at all. I spend a lot of time and energy tracking down old software and this is very unusual.

Quick note responding to some messages I've received: while I appreciate all the effort to find this program, I would like to request everyone run their files through VirusTotal before posting. If it has no reputation there, meaning it replies: "No engines detected this file" it's not what we're looking for. Thanks.

I found ver 2.0.0.5 in a old download collection. In the detail section it is as version 2.0.0.5 and date modified 11/8/2008. File attached. Hope it is the right version.

The attachment that nolajovol posted was removed. Site policy doesn't allow hosting programs unless specifically allowed by the admin. We don't have bandwidth to host software regardless of VT status.
