  1. Thank for advise.....this is my problem:


    If i check always on top, no change position....but if close sidebar and restart it now is okay, and the sidebar is no more under taskbar of winodws...!

    But in this way sidebar is always on top. So i return in panel of sidebar and uncheked "always on top"........the sidebar return like before !!! sigh

    Why ???

    I'm afraid I didn't understand you properly.

    Ok, you're changing theme on Vista, please specify exactly what are you trying to do so I can try that here on my PC.

    Are you having the taskbar at the top by default or it jumps up when you switch the theme.

    Do you any third party software for themes.

    Anyhow, more information would be useful.

    I have aero like a theme and my taskbar is on top. Now i change theme of third party, applied...and top of my the sidebar where yoi cna selcet gadget etc...go under taskbar....

    I think he wants the task bar on top but the sidebar won't shift down and adjust to the change.

    yes correct

    ....but try to close the gadget addrestart,that should fix the issue.

    ....gadget addrestart ????


  2. ...i try, okay this is not regarding sidebar...but i search to change the gadget slideshow, in particular dimension when this gadget is undocked. I think that the settings are inside


    and are these:



    // styles for gadget when UNDOCKED



    function undockedState()


    gUndockFlag = true;














    top=16,left=17,width=320, height=240;

    if(imagePathAndName != undefined)





    i try to change some value but only encrease the border but the image left more little....soin which way a can change in setting, so the image follow the dimension of picture frame....



  3. ....Problem...i install with installer and now when i want exit from side bar, this grey blank windows appear and if i select exit again another ...like image


    the only way to close side bar is go in taskmanager and kill sidebar proccess....

    Some help ?



    ...P.S. solved

    Lack of memory on my computer ....for install, unistall...etc. Reboot PC and now all OK :sweatingbullets: :sweatingbullets:

  4. hispanico the installer is just a modified version of the AddOn, I made it for ppl who don't use nLite by editing the INF of my addon a bit. They are both similar but the installer is less frequently updated.

    I recommend you use the installer and if you want to update the sidebar to a updated version just download the unpatched files and replace the ones the installer adds and just repatch them with Alky for Apps

    Thank rick.....so if i understand..... in my case i use installer and if you release an update like: Ricks_WindowsSidebar_Alky2k31.0_AddOn_70819.7z i download it and install it form file.inf inside...? overwriting files ??


  5. Thank Ricktendo64...but i have 2 question:

    1 - In another post: http://www.wincert.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=505

    i see this installer Windows_Sidebar_Installer_August_1-2007.exe and before install it must install Alky for Applications XP or 2003....

    So i am a little confuse ? this installer is the same of this or not ? I use your procedure of manual install ....or perhaps i can use also this ??

    2 - ...in the firs post i read "....Q1: The gadgets don't work, the clock is all black. What do I do?

    A: The Sidebar files were not successfully registered. To fix this go to "Add or Remove Programs" and use the "Change" button to fix/diagnose your problem. (It will also repair Nero DiscCopy and some Uninstalled Gadgets)"...okay but in my ad or remove programs there is not CHANGE button...why ??? because i use manual install ?

    3 - ..when you said...."Overwrite the files in Windows Sidebar directory with this: Windows Vista RTM Sidebar v6.0.6000.16386... these unpatched ones and repatch sidebar.exe, sbdrop.dll and wlsrvc.dll with alky (right click on them and choose patch vista library) ...you tell to left my manualinstallation and installover it this ? is correct.?

    Thank and escuse me


  6. Thank for your great work and istructions.....that i follow...but when windows xp sp2 start i received this error message:


    There was an error in sidebar. The application will closed

    ....I follow your manual install istructions:

    - Uncompress the AddOn to a sub-folder

    - Copy Vista Fonts to "%WinDir%\Fonts" (Optional: rename sinheix.ttf to simhei.ttf)

    - Install Alky for Applications then Log Off, then On (or Reboot)

    - Right click on Sidebar.inf and choose Install (you will get popup, this is OK)

    - Browse for regsvr32.exe in "%WinDir%\system32", hit Select then OK (you will get another popup)

    - Finally browse to the location of Sidebar.cab, hit Select, OK again (wait awhile for it to install then Reboot or Log Off and On again)....

    ....i install also WindowsXP_KB940541_86 for ITA system

    Thank for help
