Launch main UI from Shortcut/Commandline

Hi to all, i'm having a little problem.
When i connect to a remote phisical machine with a remote control software (i've tried both vnc and teamviewer) i cannot see the icon tray contextual menu.
I suspect is somehow related to the way .NET framework render contextual menu on screen (in the past i had a similar issue with another software).

The other tray icons (native applications) correctly shows the menu.
Is there a way to show the main VEB window interface from commandline/shortcut?

Best regards

Hi Max,

There is no integration with command line except starting the backup job and creating a standalone full backup. You can try to start a Control Panel and Configure backup job wizard via shortcuts in Start menu (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Veeam).
