Hello there all! Eldarien, thanks so much for this excellent plugin! I'll admit to not reading all 29 pages of this thread as I just recently started using Foobar, but I'd like to ask what may be a noob question, if I may.

Is it possible to have the 'Tooltip' album art not be a tooltip, but visible permanently? I really enjoy the album art and have taken pains to ensure they are all good, correct images, and this would be my idea of a perfect mini-player. Thanks for any info,

ianc

Hi Eldarien.

I am currently on Win7 x64 and after so many tries, I still can't install this awesome plug-in.

Link is the photo showing the error I experience.

Seems to be related to CMD location, yet the cmd.exe is at the exact location the installer is set to search.

Foobar components installed

Please help.

What I've tried so far:
- Unbocked the installer
- Old installer links
- Installing from Desktop
- Opening a CMD session while trying to install component
- Remove then reinstall component at Foobar (yes, I can add the component to Foobar, but error happens halfway, and it doesnt successfully show on the Windows Toolbar)

Hi @shryock, Do you by chance run foobar2000 as administrator? If so stop doing it. It helped me with installation issues.
Hi Alexander.

Please do not run foobar2000 as administrator, deskband controls can not send commands to an elevated process.

Hello LL.
It wasn't run as admin.
Any other tips? Thank you.

Please see photo showing Foobar properties.

I was thinking of your suggestion not running Foobar at a higher privilege, and I got the inspiration to do the opposite.
So I run it as admin, and poof! IT NOW WORKS!
Thank you so much.

What a turn of events. =D

Hi. Apparently on your system explorer.exe is running with admin privileges. No idea why, but that is definitely not a default in a windows, as far as I know.

I looked it up and its not on admin privileges. Anyway, it works, so no more problem there.
Thank you!

Hello, i reinstalled foobar and i see that a Peak Meter has been added (but hidden by default).

The problem is that there is now an empty area right to the Deskband : X
I don't need the Peak Meter so hidding it, i would want to have it completely cut from the Deskband.

Thank you.
