Heya,

First off thanks for the plugin/extension, just what i wanted.

Sadly, im failing to understand the 'unblock' part, i've re-downloaded the zip with Chrome IE FireFox Opera and Safari, none of those give me any preferences menu-option on rightclicking the download, let alone the option to unblock?
Could somebody please elaborate? is it maybe related to UAC? (thats already turned off here) or am i maybe supposed to get unblock option on the downloaded zip file right-click? (like, in windows explorer instead of browser) because if so, thats not showing up either

I extract the zip to my C:\ drive, and run the Register Deskband.cmd file, this is what it tells me, always;

Druk op een toets om door te gaan. . .

(Since i dont wanna assume your dutch or wanting to Google translate the above, its saying how it cant find the file Bin\Deskband.dll, followed by the error code it got/generated)
I should note that the above error mentions the Foobar2000DeskbandControlsNET directory being in the foobar2000 directory, ive tried to run it at the topmost level in C:\ and in system32, neither changed anything.

- Windows 7 Proffesional 64bit SP1
- Tried to download with latest version of all mayor browsers, no difference
- Got UAC disabled, still tried starting as admin, even tried compatibility (but that wouldnt work since theres no exe)
- My computer already had the Client .Net 4.0 stuff, but even so, tried to 'set up default settings' and even uninstall followed by re-install, no luck either
- I even let CCleaner clean the windows register (since thats apparently a common cause for the Deskband.dll error) but that didn't change things.

Any help highly appreciated!!!! Im very puzzled at where exactly im screwing up..

Right click the downloaded zip file.
Goto Properties in the menu.
Bottom right corner of the General tab will have an 'Unblock' option under the 'Advanced' button if it needs to be unblocked.

Cant seem to edit my last post, so sorry for the 'needless bump', but figured since the maker asks us to share our profiles, i should share the one i just fiddled together.

While not enabled on default, the 2 additional buttons are positioned too, if you want them just enable and move the ticker a bit.

I don't think that this error is related to Deskband Controls, but to be sure, try to uninstall it and see if error still persists.

I have no idea what this error means, sorry. Never seen it before.
You can try to find some mentions about this error in System Event Log / Application section - look for explorer.exe errors. If there are some details there post them here and I will try to investigate.

Hi eldarian,

I just installed DeskBand on my Windows 8.1 PC, and it works fine, however whenever I right click and try to go Settings it comes up with this error message:



I noticed other people getting this error in the thread, but I am certain that I unblocked the .zip before installing it.

EDIT: I checked the .zip again, and the button to unblock the .zip had come back. However, no matter how many times I unblock it, when I re-open the properties dialogue it appears to be blocked again. How can I permanently unblock it?

You have to uninstall it and phisically delete all related files and folders, then redownload, ublock and reinstall.

I have almost everything default, except for the text block format to which I've added the Track No. here is the result:

Hi,

I have version 1.1 and use it in the vertical toolbar on the right hand side of my screen.
Would it be possible to specify that a text block be split over x lines of text in the deskband rather than have it scrolling, which I find very distracting?
Or perhaps, have the text scroll only when the mouse is over the text block in question?

Thanks, Dan

Wow dude.. That's a fantastic DeskbarUI! Do you have a sort of configuration file with all the settings?
Thanks in advance!;)
I also quote the little "side-panel" bug that appears after clicking apply, it happens to me too!;)

1 - Background transparency is a big problem on aero, I've tried..
2 - Yes, that is because it reloads new settings, this is expected behavior. Will look at it though.
3 - Yes, when I will have time.

Yes, you can use $char(13) to split lines, but don't forget to set text block height accordingly. Anything from foobar2000 title formatting scripts should work.

Thanks, I like your configuration too. But I have to ask you something, I'm a sort of retard configuring the plugin. Can you change your settings so the buttons will shown in the left side of the tittle and upload it to pastebin?

Sorry my bad english.

This is really annoying. When editing settings, lets say I'm editing Volume under the 'Trackbars' tab. And I finish editing a value and hit apply, it automatically selects
'Position', so if I try to edit a value again I end up changing the wrong thing. Please fix this its really annoying when trying to edit the settings.

And thanks for this awesome plugin btw.
