Sometimes my Unattended Access icon disappears.
While the client machine seems to be on line, it won't open.
If I remote in a different way, I don't see the GTA icons on either the Desktop or in the System Tray.
So, I'm motivated to go to Program Files and create a Desktop shortcut. But there are so MANY g2ax .exe files to choose from!!!
While the Remote Support icon should not be randomly disappearing on you, the Unattended exe should be located similar to here: Customer\1251\g2ax_installer_customer.exe
If you are sitting at the computer and the Unattended icon is no longer in your system tray, you can relaunch it using the GoToAssist Customer shortcut in your Windows Start menu (currently still under a Citrix folder). If no one is actually quitting the application from the system tray, I would suspect that something is causing the service to stop running.
I personally do not use RDP but I know that it does not show you the actual desktop, unlike GoToAssist or VNC. If you are connecting via RDP I am fairly confident that is why you do not see the GoToAssist icon in the tray.
I got back to needing the answer here and luckily *did* find an .exe that worked. But there are so many that I forgot.
So, if nothing is showing and searching for gotoassist doesn't work the which of these should be launched?
OK. Used RDP:
So this time I used g2ax_installer_customer.exe ran as Administrator and it caused the latest app to download and install. Now it's running.
So I gave it the support key and now I have a session running.
In the GTA session:
The System Tray icon does not have "Unattended Access \ Update Password" in the right click menu.
But, "Set up Unattended Support" is grayed out and "Upgrade to Run as a Service" is also grayed out.
So, it looks like it should show up on my list of computers now - but I think it does NOT.
I guess I could install some VNC app to bootstrap this up but that's such a nuisance....
It just seems like this should be possible once one has access to begin with.
