Now magicjack runs as a service, is completely invisible, starts up automatically on boot, and I don't need fast-user switching enabled, thus it takes up no memory caused by virtual desktop programs or autosizer, and has 0 focus problems.
Here is my current step by step to get this setup ->
1. Download rktools.exe
2. Extract it.
3. Create a user account named "magicjack", temporarily assign admin privilege. Also create a password for this account.
4. Login as “magicjack”, and install the magicjack under this profile.
5. Install the magicjack as a service, using the tutorial
After you create the service, if you export the registry value from regedt32.exe, it should look similar to this ->
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
"Application"="c:\\Documents and Settings\\magicjack\\Application
Note: the ImagePath string value is really something like "c:\Program Files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\srvany.exe"
6. Delete the two cdloader entries for MagicJack in the registry. Using regedt32.exe, logging in from both of your user accounts, delete this entry from ->
7. Change the magicjack user account to be a user account instead of an admin account.
Notes: Now, when I did this the magicjack service still wouldn't start, so I went to Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services->MagicJack and tried to start the service from there, but I got this error ->
"Could not start the service on Local Computer. Error 1069: The service
did not start due to a logon failure"
So, I went to the log on tab (still in the magic jack service tab) and put in the password, and everything works beautifully!
