  1. I made further tests... these apps seem to work on 64bits: CPU-Z GPU-Z HD Tune HWMonitor MemTest MS Config Services and Devices Smart Driver Backup DirectX HP USB Format Tool Windows Version I suggest to create a 64bit pack version with these apps only (I also suggest to verify if there are specific 64 bits versions of them and of the non-working apps)
  2. I tried the pack on Windows 7 64Bits (RC build 7100) and most of apps don't work
  3. thanks kel for accepting my suggestions this version is perfect
  4. Thank Kel for all the time you spend on this project I don't know if it's better to remove msconfig cpl too since it's the same of regedit one (I always use "run" command to load regedit or msconfig) If you want to keep it maybe you could remove the text inside () since it's the only control panel app with () in the name
  5. Hi Kel Some suggestions: - I ask to add ECC back. I know CCleaner is good to clean cookies as well, but I think ECC is better. It is able to identify and delete "expired cookies only" and this is a big feature since CCleaner just allows you to choose them manually with no infos about their validity status - I think you should remove Timezone utility since Vista already has the built-in feature to show different time zones (in the clock properties) - I think this package is better than original CPL's bonus pack because it includes less tools. I also tried it on XP and it works fine. The only app that gives error is "screen saver powertoy". All others tools are perfect. So I think you could remove this tool (since it's not important one) and have a single installer for both XP and Vista systems optimizing resources P.S. Some tools, like GPU-Z, need to be updated
  6. Thanks Kel for the update I saw you removed some apps... are they incompatible with Vista? (I'm asking because I have old 2.2 version installed) About merging: you could create an unique installer that check for os version (Vista or XP) and installs compatible apps only I don't know if it's possible
  7. I think it needs some updates (as seen in bonus pack 9.2.5) Maybe you should merge the two projects
  8. Hello Rick, any news about localized versions of this addon? P.S. Merry Christmas and happy 2009
  9. Happy to read this, rick I'm available to help you with italian translation, I'll wait for your instructions P.S. Is the package installable on running Windows XP right-clicking on the inf file, just like the Sidebar?
  10. Thanks Kel for this great add-on Can you release a silent installer to use on already installed Windows like the CPL pack? Thanks again
  11. Is reboot after Alky installation still needed? I mean on manual install I'm asking because it's not specified in your instructions
  12. hi rick please, is it possible to have italian version of this pack (like localized versions of Sidebar)? I have italian version of Windows MCE and I can send you italian files if you need them to create localized pack Thanks a lot in advance
  13. Hi Rick, here is the link for patched files you requested (I tried the ones posted by Sheikaln and sidebar.exe doesn't seem to work, it has wrong file size): http://www.mediafire.com/?c4m1xbirly2 Also here is a better translation for the localized strings Sheiklan translation is good but this version is more Microsoft-style (I used same words of Office and Windows installations) so it makes it looking more "original" Italian strings:
  14. Thanks Rick, it was a problem with .gadget association
  15. hi kel, is it possible to add siw to the pack? http://www.gtopala.com/ It's very useful tool, one exe only with no installation and in the download section there is the cpl file
  16. Ok, give me a few minutes and I'll provide the files
  17. hi rick, a little question: when I manually install the sidebar right clicking on the inf file, is the "gadget installer" installed as well?
  18. Sure Rick, just tell me how to apply fade skin to sidebar.exe (also if I have to patch before apply the skin or the opposite)
  19. Thanks Sheiklan for fixing the errors I have some suggestions about the translation of strings. Can I write them here? If it's not a problem for you
  20. Italian stuff posted in the translation requests topic Thanks in advance Rick for your work
  21. Thanks for the info Rick Do you think it's better to wait a fix for SP1 Sidebar and release the add-on directly with the updated version?
  22. You are right, I just red Rafael posts on aeroxp forum Happy to hear that P.S. Why to close the Alky project if it will live on another name? Legal reasons?
  23. Hello Rick, is it correct that, if I manually install your addon on a running system, the Gadget Installer by Thomas Pleasance is not installed? Or is it not included into the addon at all? If it's so, can you include it in future versions? thanks in advance for the answer
