Disable systray icon when running on Server HyperV

Struggling to try and run Duplicacy web on a Windows HyperV server, (Core) with no UI.
This is probably because Duplicacy web is trying to create a systray icon which the core OS doesn’t have a GUI / systray.

I’d imagine this would stop duplicacy running as a service aswell.

Any plans to make duplicacy web support running without systray icon so it would work on server core and services

I’ll add an option to disable the systray icon.


Thank you, that would be amazing, we just purchsed a license and realised we couldn’t back the server up haha.

Thank you gchen, and thanks for the great software.

Do you need specifically the UI, or would CLI also be enough? Maybe you can try CLI first

Oh sorry, ye I immediately went back to CLI, but the web UI is so pretty xD

Hey sorry, hope you had a good christmas and such.

Did this get added ? just wondering if it’s a hidden argument or something ?

Yes, with 1.1.0 you can pass the -no-tray-icon option as a command line argument to the web GUI when starting it up.

Wouldn’t you be better reinstalling Duplicacy Web as a service instead? Currently, service mode lacks the tray icon anyway, and you probably can’t keep a user session logged in. (Actually, I have no idea how Core works wrt user sessions but a service makes more sense anyway.)

Thanks everyone I will look into this today, thank you !!!
