Hi friends,

Big Thanks for your comments.

Today I have solved majority of remained problems with LaunchBar adaptation for English Windows XP. All functions are works very quickly and correctly. Now you'll be able not only to create and modify any Shortcuts but to change their positions inwardly the Floating Bars also.

The last little problem is the auto hide of LaunchBar when Left or Right mouse buttons are pressing on the desktop (outside of device borders). Please wait one day while I'll solve it, will test this and send here. Hope it will be very useful tools for Windows XP users.

To jlaj1989: Alas I could not save this device as a widget because it works correctly only as a gadget. The scripts of LaunchBar Buttons are much complex than in SD Shortcuts (because there are not the examples). However you'll can edit some variables in the *.ini file.

LaunchBar temporary directory is:
"C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Stardock\LaunchBar"

Launch data is: "Launch32|program|DirectX|C:\WINDOWS\system32\dxdiag.exe|C:\Documents and Settings\Vadim\Local Settings\Application Data\Stardock\LaunchBar\Icons\dxdiag.ico" where:
"Launch32" - Shortcut ID (don't change it manually)
"program" - type of Shortcut (don't change it manually)
"DirectX" - name of Shortcut (possible to change)
"C:\WINDOWS\system32\dxdiag.exe" - path to file or folder (possible to change)
"C:\Documents and Settings\Vadim\Local Settings\Application Data\Stardock\LaunchBar\Icons\dxdiag.ico" - Shortcut Icon ID (don't change it manually).

Best Regards.

P.S. The color changer is already added.

Is this a free gadget? Or, is it a 30 day trial?
Comment #5 Monday, April 10, 2006 8:38 AM
Look great and fast, but i just wonder how can i put a program on the bar that needs options?

i use putty a lot of time to different hosts so i want to put a hostname after the putty.exe.

For Citizen bubf:

Certainly this is free gadget which I can't save as a widget for a lot of objective reasons. Moreover I'll never place here trial versions. SD Media Player was my first and last mistake.

For ikku:

I have not understood well the essence of this problem. Can you show an example of program which you want to run?

Best Wishes.

For Mr jlaj1989:

This is much interesting. Nearly one hour I tried to get such result but have not got nothing...

So it's need find the "launchbar.set" file in the work folder to open it with notepad and edit two lines:


Then restart the gadget. If it will not help you need delete this file and restart gadget.

Best Regards.

P.S. It seems me that you'll find a new version of LaunchBar in your mail box Tonight.
Comment #13 Tuesday, April 11, 2006 2:12 PM
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.
Comment #15 Tuesday, April 11, 2006 4:16 PM
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.
Comment #16 Sunday, April 16, 2006 7:21 AM
I still have a little problem with this. When i rename a tab, and shutdown my computer or close the launchbar. It will change the name back to the default names. Very Cool Again

For Mr jlaj1989:

Big Thanks, Jerry! I have found it!!!!! LaunchBar scripts are very complex and consist of a thousands lines. As a result my eyes don't see all bugs. So I have forgotten to change "rename" command in English version...

Certain that together we will force this thing to work OK beyond all doubt.

Wait a several minutes for update please.

Comment #19 Sunday, April 23, 2006 6:36 AM
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.
