[AddOn] Windows Sidebar v6.0.6002.18005

Recommended Posts

Ok so there's no way possible to get the Hover effect? Oh well I guess, the ported version is alot better than Thoosje.. since I can get whatever gadget I want. Thanks for the sidebar :D

If you really want a sidebar on XP with the Vista fading effect, you'll need to use the Google Desktop. The fade isn't exactly like Vista but it is there. Be aware that it uses probably just as many resources of the Vista sidebar.

My Sidebar disappears after rebooting sometimes and then i have to install it again,would it be better to go to add and remove programs and use the change button to fix it?

You wouldn't by any chance have Windows Sidebar Styler installed would you?

If so Uninstall it or make sure .Net Framework 3.0 and 3.5 above are installed

Hey Rick...great port of sidebar to XP.

The only problem I have is when I try to download more gadgets from the MS site. I get a warning box that says "Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded."

I don't have any issues with any other downloaded files...what setting might be keeing me from downloading?

Bring on the HATE! :P


BTW: I need your feedback ppl (expecially non english XP users), I wanna know if your lang was detected by the INF and if not what is your LCID (open a CMD window and type LCID) manual install or XP setup should not matter

Also if any of you see any problems with the dialog translations plz fix them and post them in the sidebar translations section or here

Hello Mr. Rick. :)

It neglects to call fairly.

We wish sincerely to express our gratitude for the revival of a Japanese version.

The problem that cannot be uninstalled in the latest version occurs.

The directory of Process.exe doesn't exist.

It is possible to uninstall it normally by specifying C:\WINDOWS\system32\Process.exe.

Please examine it.

[ Addition ]

; Copies LCID to "%WinDir\system32" (during [DefaultInstall] only)


lcid.exe ; [ 5804 lines ]

process.exe ; It doesn't exist.
