How I speak Spanish in addition to the normal gadgets also I translated a couple other gadgets for you, like Office MRU, Recycle Bins (XP and Vista), Vista Calculator, Digital Clock, Gadget Spacer

BTW make sure you find a way to integrate KB940541 either in a updatepack or some other form

Hello Mr. ricktendo64. :)

Even if a Japanese font is installed, is it impossible?

However, the file was prepared though it did not understand whether to become a resolution of a question. : Sidebar.inf

Office MRU Gadget cannot be installed in XP Japanese environment.

I think it is good in English when it doesn't go well.

My best regards though the hardship is multiplied.

I'm sorry.

It made a mistake in the file and it transmitted.

Hello Mr. Rick. :)

Mr. Rick thinks that it confirms it with US English XP.

The code system such as JIS, Shift-JIS, and EUC was flooded, and OS of Microsoft adopted Shift-JIS for the character-code of Japan in that for years since MS-DOS until Unicode was defined.

And, the internationalization was held by the appearance of Unicode.

As for Windows XP Japanese version, Unicode(UTF-7,UTF-8,UTF-16...) was adopted from SP1, and there was no garble and it came to be able to read the document in the environment of the each country version.

However, present XP doesn't correspond still completely and have the file that should be written with Shift-JIS in a part of document such as installers.

This INF file hits it.

Therefore, please release it after trying to encode the character-code to Shift-JIS immediately before though it works by UTF-8 in the environment of Mr. Rick and it doesn't care.

Otherwise, it is not correctly installed in the environment of a Japanese version because it garbles.

The software used for the Shift-JIS conversion was prepared.: http://rapidshare.com/files/106382210/maru...signed.exe.html

Sidebar.inf of new add-on was done in UTF-8 and prepared.: http://rapidshare.com/files/106384584/Sidebar.inf.html

When having confirmed it with Sidebar.inf before it converted it, everything was operated without trouble.

My best regards above.

JIS = Japan Industrial Standards

Can you guys send me a patched with alky sidebar.exe (with fade skin too), sbdrop.dll and wlsrvc.dll (I also need the manifests files)

I am no longer on XP but am on Vista and I do not have the memory req to install it on VMware

EDIT: the tooltip is done automatically by the MUI files and sorry the other gadgets have to stay, it will take me hours to redo the INF file and delete thousands of PNG files

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 ;)

Oh, ok! ;) No problem!

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):


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:

InsTitle ="Installazione di Windows Sidebar"

InstQuest="Installare Windows Sidebar?"

InsFinal ="Congratulazioni, Windows Sidebar

wn8su I will wait until you have Vista SP1 installed, so you can send me the proper Windows Sidebar folder...the RTM sidebar and those files aren't going to do it because I already have a old RTM (v6000) Greek Sidebar addon

Here you go..

The proper folder


They should be ok, notify me if they are not.
