Looks nice. It looks like you have the 5342 sidebar. I got a copy with the XP patch but can't get it to run. Keep getting an error when I try to launch it. How did you install it on your computer?

For anyone who wants the 5342 sidebar to work on there PC, go here, and read thru all the Q&A's.. - Link
For anyone interensted in the blue orb, just replace the original orb with this one, and set the margins up right! (should be same margins as the old orb) -
For anyone interested in the icons, there is an pack of 800+ icons located here - Link
As far as the green arrow on my start panel goes, it was a pain in the butt to do...
thanks for the comments, and enjoy!

Ok, I found out how to get the sidebar to work! At least fixed my problems anyway. I found out through reading the 5342 thread, that you have to have .net framework 2.0 installed on your computer. After I installed it, it launched with no problems (except of course you need to delete or rename the launcher.gadget because it's not working in xp yet (known issue)

Im glad you found what you where looking for! The launcher is working if you replace the script file with one mentioned in the thread... But it is still bugged, as far as adding shortcuts to it...

john houssock, the reason it isnt working right is because the image I posted is vertically alligned. You need to open the "original orb" in photoshop (or similar program) and paste the new orbs on top of the old ones. The old orb is horizontally alligned. I wont send the skin to anyone, because my explorer.exe is hacked, and looks crappy on other PC's that dont have a hacked explorer.exe. Hope that works for you! Orignal orb should be a .tga file located in the vista skin directory of your choice.. Windowblinds will not recognize the file right if it isnt alligned horizontally.
