VR Insight M Panel Gear switch makes FSUIPC icon in Taskbar blinking

As said in the title, when I actuate the Vrinsight M Panel's gear switch (up or down doesn't matter), it works perfectly function wise, but always brings up the Taskbar with the FSUIPC icon blinking. When I click on it, FSUIPC comes up as it usually would, nothing more. 

It's a bit distracting however, when you always have to click the icon to make the Taskbar disappear again. 

FSUIPC redownloaded yesterday, but it had been this way since release of the MSFS version. In P3D it was OK. 

The M panel is not configured in FSUIPC in any way. 

It there a simple solution?

Strange. When this happens, do you already have the FSUIPC icon in the task bar (i.e. is the main window already open and/or iconised?)?
Or does it move from the system tray (where it usually sits) to the taskbar? Do you have the console window open (with this open, there will also be an FSUIPC icon in the task bar)?
Maybe try with the FSUIPC7 console window open (with FSUIPC in the system tray), to see what (if anything) is logged when this occurs

Thanks John for coming back to me. It happens either way, both when in the taskbar or in the system tray. It will always move to the task bar and blink/highlight, bringing up the hidden taskbar.

Until now I couldn't figure it out- when I open the console by clicking on the icon in the task bar, only the console comes up in its usual state. WIll try with the console already open.

When windows flashes a task bar icon, it means that there us something there for your attention.

Not sure I understand this. There are two main (i.e. can be minimised to the task bar) windows in FSUIPC7, The FSUIPC7 main window and the log console window.
When you click the tray icon you should just see the context menu. Double-clicking will open the FSUIPC main window. You can only open/close the (log) console from the Log menu. I was suggesting that you try with the log console open, and see if any messages are logged when this occurs.

Could it be that FSUIPC is requesting focus for some reason? Maybe check if any ini parameters are set to do this (e.g. KeyboardFocus=Yes in [Buttons] section) and maybe try changing that.

I somehow cured the problem. In the log I only could see

  504922  3172 WRITE0[13976]  3110,   8 bytes: 1F 02 01 00 00 00 00 00                          ........

when actuating the switch.

But I deleted some general assignments to macros (maybe ported in from P3D config) which were not found anymore, and the problem is gone. SO once again, while not knowing the solution, you pointed me in the right direction to find the issue myself.

Many thanks, your great support is very much appreciated!

All the best.
