Project Description

Create a boilerplate (no actual) functionality, just simple UI for Windows in C++ (no .NET please).

Basic requirements:

- Should be able to build from scratch from command line in one command

- MSI installer with correct install/unistall/upgrade (application name: "Quisque Tellus Sapien") and end user license agreement step (take any text)

- Windows 7, Windows 8 support

- Clean code with some comments

- No additional components should be required during install

- Should be able to open and build with the latest MS Visual Studio


- After program is launched, the notification icon appears in the tray (the same area where sound icon is located). Also program should be launched just after install

- When notification icon is clicked the popup window appears

- There are two states: Idle and Working

- Popup window/menu in the "Idle" state:

Start (goes to the state "working")

Stop (grayed/disabled)

Results (shows message box)

Exit (exits the program; the tray icon correctly disappears)

- Popup window/menu in "working" state:

Text (not clickable): Lorem ipsum dolor: <line break>Vivamus adipiscing accumsan velit, et auctor velit semper sed.

Start (grayed/disabled)

Stop (goes to "Idle" state)
