:excl: TIP: If u have problems with weather gadget -> "Service not available" you have to change Regional Options to English (US)

Thanks Rik! Working great here, including the themes ;)

Is there anyway to disable the transparency? My laptop can't really handle it that well :(

If you dont want the transparent sidebar just extract the sidebar.exe from RTMSidebarSkins.7z and copy it (Unpatched) to %ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar then Right Click on sidebar.exe and Patch and Run Vista Executable...

BTW the None skin is just that a sidebar with absolutely NO Skin, I recommend that one

WLan API Hotfix is not installed, look on the VAIO forum and you will find the link

I doubt it, I integrated it with RyanVM's Windows XP Post-SP2 Update Pack, which includes WLan API Hotfix.

Type this in a CMD window

"%VAIOTOOLS%\regtlib.exe" "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe"

Thank you Ricktendo64, now it's all right :thumbsup:

Download the Skin patches available on the first post.... Patch the sidebar.exe thats included with the patches and then copy it to the Windows Sidebar folder (overwriting the old one)

Then right click on it and patch with VAIO

hmmm thats wierd. Never heard of any of those errors.

The reason some gadgets might be broken is either IE7 is not installed correctly and/or the gadgets arent registered correctly

Try this cmd file /(copy it into notepad and save as whatever.cmd)

ECHO OFF
CLS
TITLE Sidebar Files Registration
CD "%VAIOTOOLS%"
regtlib "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar\sidebar.exe"

CD "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Sidebar"

.\regsvr32 sbdrop.dll

.\regsvr32 wlsrvc.dll

Taskkill.exe /IM sidebar.exe /F

Start sidebar.exe

Good day,

Feel so happy coz my sidebar issues fixed already.... after throughout study in this forum.... :thumbsup_anim:

and you're right my IE didn't installed correctly thats why I can't installed WLAN API and also because of some of my XP files corrupted. ....in the first place I reinstalled the XP then everything went okay! :worthy:

But I still has small issues : Why my drive info gadget cannot displayed 2 images, when I picked 2 drive the image went black and ugly?.............why my calculator only functioning when using mouse not the keyboard?......why feed headlines look weird ? and lastly as common user faced the weather info still nut functioning... :questionmark:

But overall I'm 120% satisfied with this sidebar compared with others...You really done great job. congrat :clap:
