Running multiple instances of CruiseControl monitor

We’re using a customised version of Cruise Control, hence we all stuck with old one-per-project Cruise Control Monitor (v.

Major hassle for me is to monitor a number of projects in tray. This version doesn’t support multiple project configurations with only one entry in the config allowed for a project:

As a result, every time I restart a machine I need to start 4 instances of CCTray and manually select corresponding projects from a list. Annoying!

Simple fix is:

  • Create multiple config files, with just ProjectName entry being different
  • Create however many shortcuts to CCTray you need in your Startup group and specify a corresponding config file as a parameter
  • Enjoy the view of multiple CruiseControl Monitors sitting in your tray:
