Hi Rick...I think I found the reason why the alky wont install properly...

When i use this addon with RVM Integrator noted that new file (SVCPACK.INF,HIVESFT.INF) being created in integration main folder.

I compare the inf file from old sidebar addon version and the latest version there is different in [EditFile] section...

old:

[EditFile]

I386\SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,AddPrograms

I386\HIVESFT.INF,AddReg,AddFonts

I386\HIVESFT.INF,Strings,AddStrings

new :

[EditFile]

SVCPACK.INF,SetupHotfixesToRun,AddPrograms

HIVESFT.INF,AddReg,AddFonts

HIVESFT.INF,Strings,AddStrings

does this is the cause that alky not properly install?

Hi, i finally got around and managed to install the sidebar and put in the desktop wallpaper. Now, i remember last time i had this gadget installed, it displayed some nice looking wallpapers (probably from the internet, because i didnt have those). The desktop wallpaper i downloaded have a few, but far away from the amount and quality i had before, so i am wondering how to get hold of more online wallpapers and how to use them with the desktop wallpaper. I am not sure if i should be asking this question here, but i'll give it a go anyway!

It is already a addon so its best if you integrate it

If you dont want to be prompted remove the following from sidebar.inf

Line #6202

BeginPrompt		 =BeginInsPrompt

Line #6213

EndPrompt		   =EndInsPrompt

Use this to launch the inf

rundll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection sidebar.inf,Install

Thank you, that is exactly what I needed. I have a script that I use to conditionally install software after an XP build. Needed this information for the sidebar addon so the script would complete all it's install before rebooting. I also found that removing

Line #6214

CODE

SmartReboot =A

addressed the sidebar install reboot. Thanks again. I really appreciated your help.

sidebar.exe command line parameters:

/autoRun
/AX
/CPL
/detectMem
/showgadgets <- This is the one you want
/uninstallgadgets <- This does the same but it tells you how to uninstall gadgets
/RegServer
/UnregServer

IMO use /uninstallgadgets because if you install a new gadget while the gallery is open and you do /showgadgets it will simply come to front and will not show your newly installed gadget...but if you use /uninstallgadgets the gallery will refresh and it will show you the new gadget that was installed
