  1. Sorry for my late response.

    @kiki burgh

    I've checked my installer with /S switch and it seems to work just fine, there will only be a little DOS screen that will still shows up and close automatically. If you are using this with WPI then make sure you have the right quotation.

    This is from my WPI config file:

    prog[pn]=['Windows Vista Sidebar Installer 1.1 *'];


    desc[pn]=['Windows Vista Sidebar for Windows XP'];



    cat[pn]=['Microsoft Softwares'];


    cmd1[pn]=['"%wpipath%\\Install\\WindowsXPSidebarInstaller-1.1.exe" /S'];


    Also, if you still see the black clock, please re-run the installer again and see if it is still got the same error or not? I need to know where did it wnet wrong. Thank you


    Do you still see this error every time you reboot?

    And Do you have Windows XP64-bit installed on the same partition?

  2. The request from


    Normally, I've packed this with my Theme Addon ^^.

    This is a Vista RTM LOUD Sounds Scheme version since the original one is too soft.

    I've also added in 2 hidden sounds in Vista RTM for minimizing and maximizing the window.

    - Fixed RAR SFX

    If you want the True Addon version, PM me ^^

  3. From my point of view:

    Rick installer is still using the INF/true Addon method, which I have to say it is slow and there's a chance for user to make a mistake by pressing cancel button. This method is only good for an addon but not for the installer.

    My one is using the installer script which is faster and smaller with better compression. It is definitely good for WPI and normal setup.

    If u try both installers u will see the differences.

  4. Hi guys, hi Ricks! ^SoKoOLz^ i noticed that your installer (i've tried only the 2k3 version) installs vista fonts only in "c:\windows\fonts". Obviously this is not a bug and your work is great but maybe people with a different configuration of their hard drives (like "f:\windows" or else) could encounter some problems.

    Except this your installer works like a charm! Byezzzz :welcome:

    Yep peraps you r right, I'll look into that and will release the new version soon. THank you very much.
