Have it all configured and it works like a charm.One question? Are you planning on adding the color changer later on? As a lover of launch bars I can easily say this is the best one Ive ever seen, you do great work!

A color changer would be great.

Also, I seem to be missing the details on how to align the bar with the top of the screen, versus the bottom.

Very Cool

Yes wondering Same Thing. Other than that very cool.

O I Figured it out. Right Click on System Control. Choose Show LaunchBar. And pick on top of screen

Lol Took me like to seconds to figure it out. Again Very Cool

I have one more question. How are the programs stored? Are they like in SD Shortcuts, in a Configuration. I want to edit the shortcuts in the file instead of adding the shortcuts to the bar. Its easyer to edit them in the file because you can copy and paste. Just wondering.

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 #11 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 #19 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.
