    Use [thread=343]Display a System Tray Icon in VC++[/thread] and use a new flag (available where _WIN32_IE >= 0x0500), NIF_INFO, which lets you display a balloon tip. The text goes in szInfo and the message in szInfoTitle.

    Actually I used visual c++6.0, so It's not available _WIN32_IE>=0x0500 in ' Shellapi.h' file, that header file available structure is :
    typedef struct _NOTIFYICONDATAA {
    DWORD cbSize;
    HWND hWnd;
    UINT uID;
    UINT uFlags;
    UINT uCallbackMessage;
    HICON hIcon;
    CHAR szTip[64];

    What should I do?
