Vistaish sidebar for win win98

Recommended Posts


Hey, very nice to hear that you're working on a "native" W98 sidebar! I'm using the Active Desktop based "Longhorn Sidebar" (4.0) at the moment (the one in the screenshot):

but that Longhorn Sidebar is somehow just an ugly hack since it runs on Active Desktop and Flash. Would be great to have a native Sidebar...keep us posted about your progress :-D

This might be a bit off topic, but I can't help but noticing that you have Vista-like transparent windows.

HOW did you get those under Win9x?

Yes, i know about that....that's because the Sidebar uses those files(those files are included in the program code). This first version of the sidebar uses those files beacause i'm still learning how to make a slide in the image area, shrinking your wallpapers from your pictures folder (or another folder). So....still learning! :blushing:

Working on plugins for the sidebar( i found something very interesting...so i'll be reading this days :thumbup ). Plugins for sidebar....yeah!!!.

Look at this:

My screen resolution is 800x600 not 640*480(what screenshots??). What icon packs are u talking about?
Xstyle, I was talking about post #10 by Libanoro. Sorry for not quoting to make it clear.

Libanoro, if the Renovatio and RP7 can both run fine on your computer, I think I'll give it a try. But if they have any conflicts on my computer (I hope they won't), can you suggest a name for me to curse? I'd better find some information about the Renovatio before installing it. Goodbye all.

Renovatio worked perfect for me after rp7.... If somethings happens you can put the blame on me. :unsure: Renovatio v0.2 will be a lot better...... :whistle: (if i have time..... :wacko: ).

As awergh already noticed: I'm just using a "Vista" theme in my browser, so it's not transparent. Would be cool though :)

I installed RP7 on top of Renovatio, because I haven't got an English W98, but as you know, Renovatio changes a lot of stuff into English, which causes problems. For example the %apppath% directory changes and the Start Menu changes as well. So I installed RP7 again on top, because it changes my system back to my language.

I kept the Explorer toolbars from Renovatio, because they look better, IMO. And some icons are kept as well, which is cool. But I'd love to see a localized (in my case german) version of Renovatio. I would translate/convert it myself, if I just knew how...

BTW: There's one problem after I installed Renovatio... the explorer always freezes for a few seconds after I open it for the first time. The same goes for programs that make use of the explorer (for example during a "save as..." dialogue). Does anyone know the reason for that, or maybe even how to fix it?

Xstyle, I've installed your Renovatio and see that the icons are improved so much. It's very good. The file THUMBVW.dll from RP7 works better for me so I keep it.

Well, if you said so...

- First, when I turn on my computer, an error message will pop up. It doesn't happen if I restart Windows or log off. In the box of details, it says:

RUNDLL32 caused an invalid page fault in

module SHELL32.DLL at 01a7:010721b1.

Registers:

Stack dump:

ffffffff 00000000 00000000 0063d000 0063d000 0000012e 0063ff68 bffa1e1f 000000f3 0063cfcc bfc049da 0063cec1 bff7b9c5 81d19f7c 00000000 010722b1

I always feel dizzy when I look at such codes! I know nothing about them. Please tell me how to get rid of this error.

- Second, the Taskbar can't auto hide although I choose this option from its properties. And it keeps flickering, on and on! I don't like this at all. How can I fix it? Don't you have this problem?

- Third, not very serious, what is the line Renovatio (under Windows Update) on the start panel for? When I click on it, nothing happens. If it has no use, how can I remove it?

Without these annoying things your Renovatio is just fine for me. And this is my own suggestion for your coming Renovatio 0.2, Xstyle. Please give me a chance to safely uninstall your project if suddenly I decide not to have it on my computer any more! Thanks in advance for your reply.

PS. It seems that my post isn't in the right thread.

I can't say what happened with that error.....with the taskbar i had the same issue(???). The renovatio line will be activated with the second version.

I will improve my project more and i'll try to keep it as simple as possible(as natural as i can).

Aniway...here is the 80% of my Rsidebar work.....
