I still have the trackbar /volume bar display when starting foobar.

Now that is strange.
Can you post your config file somewhere? (%AppData%/DeskbandControls/config.js)

Course.  http://pastebin.com/hGYuf4tP

btw, the fonts don't seem to be able to be set below 8.0; I have to set them in the config file manually.  Is that by design?

Thank you. Now I can see the problem.
Font size setting will be fixed to.

Win7 64bit with taskbar set to hide automatically, deskband controls 1.0.1 blocks the reappearing of the taskbar if you try to make it reappear where deskband controls is on it.

I see that, but have no idea how to fix for now. Will try though.

Hello. I had version 0.4.0 of Deskband. I went through the uninstall instructions in the newest version (1.0.1) zipfile. The toolbar hasn't been deleted from the toolbar menu on the desktop bar. I was wondering if I need an older unregister command to delete that older toolbar. It is called Foobar2000 Deskband Controls instead of just Deskband Controls. Thanks.

Also, I feel like I may be missing something. Or I messed up the uninstall and reinstall of the old and the new version. But I cannot seem to left align the deskband controls.

Hi g3ne01.
Yes, you need to unrerigister old version with it's own uninstaller.
New version does not use any part of old version, so you can not mess up anything
If you are referring to ability move whole deskband on taskbar than note that this ability was removed and deskband is now always docked to the right side near notification area. That way it is more stable and does not have some redraw issues that was in older version.

Anyway to re-download this old uninstaller? It is a small hiccup but I would like to remove it. I'd be willing to make a new batch file with some help based on the unregister batch file in version 1.0.1.

I removed deskband controls from foobar200. Do I have to re-add it to foobar to get it to work? I only want the Foobar2000 Deskband Controls gone off the taskbar toolbars menu. Thanks for the help. I really did mess this up nicely.

No need to re-add foobar plugin.
A few steps:
1) Unblock downloaded zip (right click - properties - unblock).
2) Unpack exactly to the same location where v0.4 was installed and run uninstall from there.
3) Kill explorer.exe with task manager and restart it. Delete all v0.4 dlls.

Rock on. Thank you very much. I really love this Add-on It is so beastly. I can do so many things.

EDIT: A question about compatibility: Will Deskband work with the Emerge Shell meant to replace the explorer shell in Windows 7?

Current version not working with windows 8.1 pro x64. I can't see anything in the windows taskbar/toolbars section after registering cmd file. I think x64 dll is missing.

But i did exactly the "read me" file says. Any suggestions?

Edit: Solved the problem. My "downloads" folder and os are in seperate harddisks. Copying the zip file to desktop and executing from there totally solved it. Works like a charm. Thanks.

The toolbar works fine for me but right clicking on settings causes a .net Unhandled exception in Xceed.wpf.Toolkit.dll
I am running windows 7 X64, I have reinstalled .net to no avail.

For me, doing this solved the issue you mentioned (quote from the readme file):
Quote
Windows sometimes marks files downloaded from Internet as unsafe and this causes various glitches in downloaded software.
So, don't forget to unblock downloaded zip - right click it, select "Properties" and then select "Unblock" in properties window.


But unfortunately after that I have the same problem that BoyC wrote about some time ago:
Quote
if I change the volume in foobar the volume display changes in the taskbar. Same with the position, and the album artwork does show up as well. However the taskbar controls don't affect foobar at all, the buttons don't do anything and the volume/position bars only change the value locally (and are changed back when their value changes in foobar). Also the music text display always says **Stopped** even if a song is playing.

Plugin reinstall, foobar reinstall, login to windows with different user, don't help. Any idea?
Win 8.1 x64

Yeah that did not work at all. .net is working fine according to the logs and the repair tool.

Nice!
  Working for me with Windows 7 x64.  It came up with no stop/start/play buttons the first time, but right clicking and going to settings let me load up the appropriate button settings for Windows 7.
  Also it took a little while to show up as an option in the "Toolbars" menu under the taskbar.  So other people who aren't seeing it show up, wait a minute or two and check again.

  Great work, this is awesome!  Thanks!

Hi !

With version 1.0.2, the toolbar doesn't hide any more when foobar2000 is closed (even with the option "Hide if foobar2000 is not running" checked)

You can try to register it for current user only. To do so:
1. Open Register Deskband.cmd in text editor and add option /regfile to the end of two lines with regasm command, like this:
Code: [Select]
@echo off
if defined ProgramFiles(x86) (
   %SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\regasm.exe /codebase "%~dp0Bin\Deskband.dll" /regfile
) else (
   %SystemRoot%\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\regasm.exe /codebase "%~dp0Bin\Deskband.dll" /regfile
)
pause

2. Run Register Deskband.cmd file (without admin rights). It should generate Deskband.reg file inside Bin folder.
3. Open Deskband.reg file in text editor and replace every occurrence of HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT with HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes
4. Run Deskband.reg file and approve import to registry.
5. Log off and logon back, than try to enable deskband in taskbar menu.
