Quick note - with the new foobar2000 1.1.11 beta, you can no longer install components directly from dll.You need to distribute the relevant dll (foo_deskband_controls) inside a zip (foo_*.zip) or the new *.fb2k-component (a renamed zip).
I double-checked my code - everything is correct. This is limitation of foobar2000 API - it does not support configurable paths in album art exposed to plugins. Paths are hard-coded in foobar itself and there are two of them: "folder.jpg" and "cover.jpg". So, if you name your file folder.jpg or cover.jpg it will display in deskband. Nothing I can do here, sorry.
i can't embed or use cover/folder.jpg because some of my preferences are for radio streams. if you could find out how to add support, that would be great.
If I upgrade from .0.3 to 0.3.1 will I lose my settings? Foobar isn't finding the update for it when I search for updates.

Plugin preserves existing configuration, but just in case you can backup deskband controls configuration file - it is located at C:\Users\%UserName%\AppData\Roaming\foobar2000\configuration\foo_deskband_controls.dll.cfg
If i find how to implement this, I will do. For now I was unable to find a documentation or working code example. If you know any open-source plugin that can show such art - let me know.
I restarted my computer and now the "Text 2" seems to be bold, any way I can fix this?

- new album art extraction code - should work correctly with custom paths
Hi eldarien,Thanks for 0.3.2, there seems to be a problem with deskband_controls_x64.dll, I get error while extracting.* EDIT *Forget it, file was locked by explorer, that's all.
