Frequently Asked Questions


• Can you add a module that measures my CPU temperature?
• Can you add more color schemes to StatBar, or can I select the colors myself?
• Can you notify me when the next version is released?
• Can you translate StatBar into another language?
• Could you add an option to place StatBar at the side of my desktop?

• How can I uninstall StatBar?
• Is StatBar open source/can I have its source code?
• StatBar is currently freeware; will future versions be freely available as well?
• StatBar shows up in my Alt-Tab program switching list!
• The CD eject/close buttons only work on one of my CD/DVD drives!
• The insert status displayed in StatBar doesn't correspond with the insert status in <application>!
OR: The insert status gets toggled when I press Ctrl-Ins or Shift-Ins as well!
• The network traffic meter is reset when it reaches 4 GB!
• The NumLock/CapsLock/ScrollLock/Insert lights are not updated!
• The options for a certain module are grayed out!
• The search engine module uses an Internet Explorer window that's already open!
• The setup program tells me that an error occurred while trying to replace a certain file!
• The Task Manager displays a different memory usage than StatBar!
• The titlebar of <application> gets placed behind the StatBar window!

Unfortunately there's nothing I can do about that; it simply isn't a StatBar problem. It is the responsibility of an application to position itself relative to the desktop working area (which is the desktop minus any task/toolbars), not relative to the complete desktop. Most applications assume that the working area starts at the very top of your desktop, which is of course not true when StatBar is running there.

• What's this RC5/OGR counter for?
