Frequently Asked Questions

• 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?

• Could you add an option to place StatBar at the side of my desktop?
• Does StatBar support Winamp 5?
• How can I add a shortcut to a folder to the QuickLaunch module?
• 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!

This normally happens when the concerning file is already in use by another application. StatBar needs this file to function properly, but since the file is already present on your system, you can safely ignore this error message (even though the setup program says that's not recommended). In most cases, StatBar will function without problems anyway. However, if StatBar refuses to start after completing the setup program (which is very rare), please restart Windows in Safe Mode and run the setup program again.

• The titlebar of <application> gets placed behind the StatBar window!
