1- If you don't use nLite you can install the Sidebar manually. First install Alky for Applications 1.1, now extract Ricks_WindowsSidebar_Intl_Alky*1.1_AddOn.7z to a sub-folder...right click on Sidebar.inf and rest is self explanatory.

Is reboot after Alky installation still needed? I mean on manual install :)

I'm asking because it's not specified in your instructions

Hey... You guys are great... I installed VTP for my laptop, its a T42 running Win XP Pro... But the provided sidebar stinks, so I found yours and it worked superbly... But recently, it wouldn't start, and kept on giving errors, then quitting immediately... Any advice?

P.s. Keep up the good work...

You have to be more specific, what errors?

Urm... It looks something like this...

AppName: sidebar.exe AppVer: 6.0.6001.18000 AppStamp:4791952a

ModName: kernel32.dll ModVer: 5.1.2600.3119 ModStamp:46239bd5

fDebug: 0 Offset: 00012a5b

And the Technical stuff looks like this...

Exception Information

Code: 0xe0434f4d Flags: 0x00000001

Record: 0x0000000000000000 Address: 0x000000007c812a5b

System Information

Windows NT 5.1 Build: 2600

CPU Vendor Code: 756E6547 - 49656E69 - 6C65746E

And some other stuff too long to type...

Have installed VTP 8.0.1

Tried the change method, reinstalled both Alky and Sidebar...

It worked at first, but after a system update or something it just bricked...


Urm... It's a common "Windows Sidebar has encountered a problem and needs to close" thingy...

FULL INTRUCTIONS FOR WINDOWS XP 64-BIT (Admin, make this sticky please)

Files needed and order to install

1. Copy tskill.exe to System32 Folder.

2. Install following:

- Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86).exe |just install BOTH, i dont care y, but it works|

- Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x64).exe |just install BOTH, i dont care y, but it works|

- Windows Internet Explorer 7 for Windows 64 bit Client-Server.exe

- Windows Media Player 11 for Windows XP (64-bit).exe

3. Install alky_1.1_trunk_032308-000051_2k3.msi and RESTART is a MUST.

4. Right click on Sidebar.inf and press install and RESTART is a MUST (its annoying, but u have to do it AGAIN).

5. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Sidebar\

Now read carefull:

Locate files and DELETE them




if they are not there, SKIP this step.

Now, press right mouse on following: sbdrop.dll (Patch Vista Library), wlsrvc.dll (Patch Vista Library) and sidebar.exe (Patch and Run Vista Executable)

-Sidebar will appear (IVE done that on atleast 5 computers with XP x64 and worked every time), but sidebar will look dodgy. Dont panic, just close it on the taskbar

Left Bottom of your screen Press right on Sidebar icon and Close.

6. Go to Control Panel Add-Remove Programs, find Windows Sidebar and press CHANGE, the menu will appear with following:

The following will re-register Windows Sidebar, Repail Gadget Installer and also repair any Shared Gadgets you may have uninstalled.

Keep pressing Ok, OK, OK...

7. Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Sidebar\ Open sidebar.exe and i WILL WORK.

I havent modified any files at all. All files are in their original state, download them from original sites:

Windows Sidebar v6.0.6001.18000 at http://www.hr-host.com/wincert/ricktendo64...tl_AlkyXP1.1.7z

alky_1.1_trunk_032308-000051_2k3.msi at http://www.fromvistatoxp.com/builds/1.1/al...-000051_2k3.rar

Thanks to creators, whom i dont know :D

Regards, ambo.

Great job guys! But I'm having a problem. I downloaded Alky and installed it. Your faq says to right click on sidebar.inf and everything else is self explanatory. What do I do after right clicking? I dont see anything new in the menu. Am I doing something wrong?

EDIT: I got it, I got it. Installing right now!

I have tried to follow the instructions here to install the Windows Sidebar on an XP SP2 system, but when I try to run it I get the following error message.

"Sorry. This application atempted to delay-load a library or function that does not exist. Instability may occur."

Any idea what to do?
