I just updated from 1.1.2 to the newest version. I'm happy about the added tooltip but I am getting an error message every launch, when manually skipping tracks, stopping playback or closing fb2k. Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't help. I made a picture and saved the details (see attachment).
Translation of the Popup: "Unhandled exception in a component of the aplication. [...] The object reference wasn't defined on an object instance."
Thanks for any help.

Windows 10 x64 v.1703 (build 15063.296)

Hi AlanWake!
Please share your configuration file located in %AppData%\DeskbandControls folder.

Thanks for your quick response.
But I have to correct myself; launching foobar won't throw an exception, it's launchning Windows / the exlporer or simply un- and then repinning Deskband to the taskbar. It is also a slightly different message (pic1). Moreover, double click won't open foobar from tray and right click menu is missing "console" and "settings" (pic2) after pressing the popup's "OK". Reinstalling the component will fix this problem until reboot (but not the other one).
Is there a way to unistall the toolbar completely? Simply uninstalling the component in foobar2000 will still leave the toolbar in windows. The old version came with two files for installing and uninstalling it, but these aren't working after the update.
I also included my config, but using the default one had the same problems.

Firstly, thank you very much for your hard work on this excellent module. However, the new version/versions (it's been a while since I last installed Deskband) breaks functionality with foobar portable mode. Maybe I'm somehow doing it wrong, but some assistance would be greatly appreciated!

AlanWake - should be fixed in 3.3.2. Thank you for detailed report. Also, you can find relevant uninstall.cmd in the Program Files\DeskbandControls\ folder.

Hi Scylla. Please tell me more what exactly breaks and how would you like it to function. Keep in mind that DC integrates into explorer.exe which is a system component, so component setup must be launched for it to function properly. Also, all configuration is saved in AppData local folder due to the fact that deskband remains installed and available even after foobar2000 itself is removed from computer (e.g. portable flash drive removed).

After installing the fb2k component, a cmd UAC requesting admin rights always launches together with foobar (not just the first launch after install). Even after that, Deskband Controls does not show up in the taskbar selection menu, where it used to be. This also happens when I manually extract the dll into foobar's components folder.

Am running the latest version of Windows 10, and foobar 1.3.15 portable.

It would be nice to have an ability to make seekbar's visible height 2 pixels less, but make the clickable area 2 pixels bigger than the visible area. It will allow to seek while clicking on the most bottom pixels on the screen, and it will look better at the same time (in my case).

These settings can have names like "padding top/bottom". So, the position bar visually will be a bit smaller, but active area will be bigger. And it will be much easier to click on it while visually it can be just a few pixels tall.

After installing service pack 1 it works!
I think I had NET Framework before when it didn't work

Hi eldarien, I have managed to fix my issue after noticing the deskband installation procedure as per the following:

The solution is embarassingly simple, which is to launch foobar.exe in admin mode...

Once again, thanks for your hard work on this plugin  :)

I love Deskbank Controls! Only foobar plugin i was impressed enough with to log in and thank the dev for so far...

Only complaint, I would love to change the scroll speed below 10. That is all i would change.

Could we get text shadow? Or at least a background color for the non-FoatingWindow mode?

Yes, I'm using a tool called Classic Start Menu to make the taskbar color fully transparent. Sadly, the wallpapar I'm currently using is a bit bright behind DeskBand, so the text is hard to read. And changing the text color would ruin the look ^^

There is a memory leak in this plugin, which is very annoying as I have to constantly restart explorer.exe in order to get my memory back. It happens gradually over time after it plays a bunch of songs, and it's really noticeable when you remove and add the deskband constantly from the taskbar. Can you please fix this?
