I've got the newest SysStats and I'm following the instructions to the point but somehow as I load the world.ini, it gives me a error message and crashes the whole objectdock...? Any advice?

Hmmm. Make sure that the docklet isn't at one end of the dock (no. really). Install MSXML4
Comment #3 Saturday, June 04, 2005 2:28 AM
Okay, I installed that MSXML4, so lets see if it helps...
Comment #4 Saturday, June 04, 2005 2:47 AM
YEEHAA, it works, praises to Judge !!!
Comment #5 Saturday, June 04, 2005 2:55 AM
Okay, how can I change the location of the clock's time? I'm sorry, I'm a bit new to this objectdock system and SysStats... :

Cool stuff I can not seem to get the zoom map in and out to work. With the docklet highlighted i.e. displaying the location label the i and o keys do nothing. Any help appreciated re what I am doing wrong.

Make sure that the docklet isn't at one end of the dock (no. really).

This is only a problem for me if it's at one *particular* end (the bottom of a vertical untabbed dock).


Okay, how can I change the location of the clock's time?

For future reference, right-click the docklet & choose 'configure' and there're some instructions in the 'description' panel. To answer your question, CTRL+LeftClick the docklet to enter the location.

Its not enough to just have the mouse over it - you have to have clicked on it first - then the mouse-wheel and the i an do keys will work.

Had a go when clicking on the docklet, i.e. it changed to a dimmed icon but i & o would not do anything. I managed to get the effect I wanted using configure > overlays > world > configure. By adjusting scale I could zoom in and I then used draw at x & y to nudge the map to show the whole of the country rather than be centered where my location is.

***** from me.

But sadly, I still can't get World Clock to work. No matter what I do, I'm told the path is incorrect. Just clicking on world.ini isn't enough. Thanks for listening, alpha-prime, but I'm getting discouraged after several hours of trying!

Make sure the files are all in the correct place.

..\docklets\systats should have sysstats.dll and sysstatscom.dll

..\docklets\systats\config should have world.ini

..\docklets\systats\images\world should have lots of png and jpg files

..\docklets\systats\scripts\world should have two vbs files

Not sure if having both object dock & plus versions is causing your issues.
On the blue sysstats ? icon right mouse click, select load, world.ini should be visible.

Hi, alpha-prime -- I checked everything you mentioned. sysstatscom.dll was in \ObjectDock, where I understood we were to unzip the file; all the others were correct. So I moved sysstatscom.dll to \docklets\sysstats. Right-clicking the blue question mark and then choosing Load brought up world.ini; clicking that did nothing. Then I tried it with sysstatscom.dll in both \ObjectDock and \docklets\sysstats at the same time with the same result.

My copy of the original ObjectDock is under Program Files and is not open. ObjectDock Plus is under Stardock\ObjectDesktop. I'll take out the original program, and see if that helps. I can't understand why others were able to unzip and use immediately.

Thanks for all your efforts!

Your clock is awesome, but I tackle a problem.
With MSXML4 I managed to load clock to ObjectDock with no crash, but whatever I do, no matter what city I choose, there's only Groton, MA on the background (clock title changes still) and it's always 10:52 AM. I can't figure out what I need to do to make it work corretly.

Comment #14 Sunday, October 02, 2005 8:43 AM
I installed the clock, but it doesnt work... It always shows 10:52 Am, even when I change the place. How can I get it to work?
Comment #15 Monday, October 03, 2005 6:21 AM
i installed the clock - BUT:
1) i only seem to be able to change the location when i put it directly in the .ini file
2) the map only shows when i start the clock for the first time with the "Groton" (or whatever) location. when i click it or do anything else it vanishes and i have a black clock. even when i restart O-Dock with the manually changed location. it just wont show again

any advice? i meanits half the fun without the map

I've the same problem of Greenglade.

What's "Groton"?
Why my clock is Black? Where is the world?
Comment #17 Wednesday, October 05, 2005 3:06 AM
"Groton" is the City which is "built in" in the .ini File - the City it starts with. Or so it seems...

A fast HELP!

The only problem now is he black background in the clock...
Where is the map?
Comment #19 Wednesday, October 12, 2005 9:33 AM
IS there any way to have the world clock display the time digitally above it instead of the location? I stink at reading analog clocks, but this one is so nice!
