Gmail notifications instantly in the Windows taskbar.
Gmail notifier is fully tested on Windows 7 desktop (SP1) and on a Windows 10 laptop.
Many other Windows operating systems may work, like Windows 8/8.1/Server, but are not extensively tested for the moment. Regarding the .NET Framework version, some operating systems like Windows Vista/XP are no longer supported.
To ensure a stable running of Gmail notifier, you need to have some requirements setted on your machine.
.NET Framework 4.7.2minimum required
Note that this version of the .NET Framework evolve in time: the application cares about system security and having one of the latest .NET version is very important for the final user. By default, if you don't have the required version installed, the application will display a message and propose to download the specified version on the Microsoft official site.
The setup installer contains both
32 bits (x86) and
64 bits (x64) versions. Its the better way to install Windows application and allows you to cleanly install/uninstall the application with ease. Note that you will need administrators rights to properly complete the installation. Recommended for all users.
The portable version is made for users who want to install the application on a USB key, or removable drive. In the uninstall process, you will need to manually remove some files from the %AppData% folder or edit the registry to completely remove the application from your computer. Portable versions are no longer available since official 1.0 release. Recommended for beta-tester users.
You can grab an old version of the application in the Github version history: keep in mind that the alpha/beta versions are just "pre-releases" and are not "production environment" ready. Recommended for power users.
