Setup/Systray? toubleshooting

Hello everyone! I'v been running into a little bit of trouble attempting to setup nsclient. Ill give you a little background info so you are a little familiar with my situation.

I have a ubuntu server box running nagios ( and a 32bit windows 7 box running nsclient ( Both are VMs.

I started by downloading the NSclient 3.8 Win32.msi and went through the install process fine. During the install I put the allowed hosts as and left the NSclient password field blank and checked the common check plugins, nsclient server, (check_nt), and Enable NPRE server (check_npre) boxes.

Before starting the service I modify the NSC.ini file as followed:

[modules] commented out the CheckWMI.dll and RemoteConfiguration.dll by adding a # after the; [settings] for password I put: ;password= for allowed host addresses I put ;allowed_hosts= for use_file I put use_file=1

(I made the above changes because I was also following: http://nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/3_0/monitoring-windows.html)

I then go to the nsclient service, go to the log on tab and check the 'Allow service to interact with desktop' box

I then go to C:\program files\NSclient and click the nsclient.exe and then nstray.exe

when I click on the systray exe windows will either give me a failure prompt and close the applicaiton or the service wont start. the systray log is as follows

    SYstem tray is not really supported to be honest. I will try to fix that at some point but since it doesn't add anything it has a pretty low priority for me...
