Excellent Gadget, works great. The files though are not created which store the configuration elements. Is this done with the updated version? Good Stuff, can't wait for the update.

For Citizen mnb_0825:

Hi, I'll send the update in a hour. This is not a beta version already. It will be nearly true copy of Desktop Interface which I use more then half of year without any problems. Hope this tool will work on the English Windows XP not worse than on Russian Windows. So wait a little time please.

Thank you Vad_M It worked worked by deleting that file. Looking forword to new version. Are you going to send it through email or update it on wincustomize. Just wondering. Because its been taking to long for uploads and updates latly on wincustomize.

Yep No Problem. Its the least i could do for you making all these cool gadgets. The most lines of code in my widgets are like 100. Is this the final or will there be final in the future. Very Cool .....Again Your Access Level needs to be upgraded to this:

A handful of "super-citizens" will be at this class. These are people who are significant contributors to the community. They can do everything an Apprentice can do but also rate the skins. The honorific "Sir" or "Lady" is appended to the front of their na If you're a journeyman, then you are one biggest contributors to The difference between a Journeyman and an Apprentice is that a Journeyman is contributing significantly to WinCustomize in particular as well as the skinning community in general. A Journeymen's skin is automatically made available upon uploading. It does not have to go through moderation first. As a result, only the most trusted users will become Journeymen because of this power. They will also eventually have access to a special council discussion area where concerns, problems and other concerns of the skinning community can be addressed.

For Mr jlaj1989:

Hm... Honestly I have not understood hitherto what means all of these levels, for what they need and who assigns their. May be it's necessary to have a GREEN CARD for this? (little joke)

So this is don't care for me what "honorific" will be appended to the front of my name. It is much important if widgets and gadgets which I have done will work without serious errors. A single what I wanted after reading of given text fragment: "skin is automatically made available upon uploading" . This is really, really COOL!

Why? Because the Wincustomize administrators begun to work so slowly in recently that I have time to make the several updates or some novelty while they make available the running version of widget. As a result people will be able to download it not earlier than after 1,5 - 2 weeks. This problem is much distress me and very obstructs my work.

Some words about LaunchBar. This is not a final version because it works not more than of 80% from which can do my Russian Interface... The next version will come much quickly when I'll finish SD Weather.

P.S. Apropos I am Apprentice already (thanks Jafo) so you can congratulate me. So I try to justify this high confidence which rendered for me.

Comment #8 Sunday, April 23, 2006 7:20 PM
Just gave this a try for the first time and it looks great.

To be able to move the sections horizontally like moving the files within sections
Drag and Drop files onto sections to add them automatically

Drag and Drop files onto sections to add them automatically
That would be kinda cool. I have a quick question. Will there ever be a SD Email Checker. Thats the only thing you havent made yet.
Comment #10 Monday, April 24, 2006 6:52 AM
Hi Friends,

Drag and Drop function? I will do this without fall. For files, programs, folders etc... This is very simply but I did not think that given option can be necessary for whomever.

E-mail checker? When I'll find the reliable way to read and add all e-mail accounts to the widget automatically (without our direct participation), I'll make this. I have the several interesting ideas about this.

Best Wishes.

ok thanks
Comment #12 Monday, April 24, 2006 3:23 PM

I have also had the problem of once its been loaded and run, and i reboot, it loads but i cant find it on the bottom of the screen. One issue is i run a laptop in multiple locations, docking station (1600x1400), home (1400x1200) etc..
I agree with the idea of the drag-drop, would make it a lot faster and easier.

Also.. some ideas.

1. Clock on the bar somewhere/maybe with a button you could click to slide out a calendar.
2. system tray area that shows whats running in the tray
3. maybe a area to show whats loaded and running (like the task bar)
4. ability to "resize" the slide out areas width and posibly the buttons themselves.

Im sure there are more things, this is REALLY great. I love how you made the shortcuts work, its really a great thing.
You have an amazing ability with DX... can you download your brain to me please?????

For RomanDA:

I am very sorry that can't adjust LaunchBar for use on a computers with two monitors yet. My system uses a single monitor.

Your ideas and offers are very useful and interesting. I'll try to add all of their to the next version of LaunchBar.

You want to download my brian? No problems. How I can help you?

a great little widget, the only problem I've had with it is after shutting down my computer it will no longer show up on my screen, but in the 3 days I left my computer on it was one of the best I've ever used, it kept everything organized the way I wanted it and loved the ability to change its color, I'll keep trying to get it running again...
Comment #15 Tuesday, July 04, 2006 9:22 PM
I just installed the launchbar. I really love this as it clears my desktop. I do have several issues I would like to ask you:

1. The "restart" tab does not work under the "System Control tab"
2. I sometimes get errors that say the shortcuts are invalid when I click anywhere in the launchbar.
3. If I freeze the panes, do I have to then resize programs such as Excel & Word? The panes block the "X" exit tab on the right hand of the application when the launchbar is docked on top of the desktop.
4. Can the main tabs be moved as far as the order is concerned? I am referring to the tabs such as "System Control" and "System Utilities"; not the programs within the tabs.

Thanks in advance. I would love to continue to use this program if I can get some of these minor issues ironed out.

Best regards,

Please reference comment #36. It has been six days since I posted these questions without a response. If you want people to use your widget, which I still think is an excellent creation and one of the best ones I have seen, then have the common courtesy to reply so I may use it properly. That is called basic sales and marketing 101.

For richardcfo:

I am very sorry but sometimes I have no a possibility to read a messages here. Regrettably I have a main job which I must concern with. And this job not bound with my DesktopX experiments...

The LaunchBar was remaked from some part of my User Interface which I use on a computer with Russian Windows XP. The problem is that some functions on English Windows may not work correctly. I have solved a lot of such bugs and nearly 100% of gadget functions are work without serious errors at the present.

Herewith this is not a commercial project. So I am ready to acknowledge that some little bugs may remains inwardly the scripts. But this bugs don't disturb to use the LaunchBar.

Abuot your questions:

1. To open Shutdown dialog as well as to execute the "Log Off" and "Restart" commands I have used standard Windows API(s). So I have no any ideas why this commands doesn't work in your system...

2. The LaunchBar reports about "shortcut" errors only when it can't find the path to application which corresponds with given shortcut. So if you see this message this means that shortcut was not created correctly.

3. I use the "freeze" function only when I want edit the Sections content. In other cases this function is "disable" on my computer.

4. The sections can't be moved yet. But they can be renamed and used for any another options (with the exclusion of "System Control" section).

Excuse me again for a delay with this answer.

Best Regards.
Comment #19 Tuesday, July 11, 2006 9:19 AM
Thank you for your response. The only problem I am having as it relates to the Shutdown dialog is with the "restart" function. The log off and shutdown commands work just fine. Seems kind of strange.

The shortcut issue I described occurs not when I try to launch an application which I have dragged and dropped onto the appropriate section, but in between sections when I click my mouse.

Once again, this is a wonderful creation. Once I am able to fully understand the working functions, I am going to add the rest of your widgets to my desktop and show them off to my co workers as well as direct them to your creations. You deserve a ton of credit in the time and effort you put into designing this. I have not seen anyone else even come close. Other creators seem to be limited to building weather or e-mail related widgets.

Best regards.

For richardcfo:

I suppose that such situation can occur when the first LaunchBar initialization was unhappily. So I have one idea how to help you.

Please, find the temporary LaunchBar folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR USER NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Stardock\LaunchBar.

In this folder you will find two files: "launchbar.ini" and "launchbar.set". Please send me these files to e-mail:

I'll try to correct their and send for you.

Best Regards.
