AveDesk 1.4 Vista Compatibility Build

59 posts in this topic

yay!

edit:this isn't working

it said it needed d3dx9_36.dll in order to run

after getting it, it crashes as soon as i start it up (caused an error and needed to close)

running vista ultimate if it matters

Same problem here. Any chance of fixing it, Ave?

I had that "Token does not exist" error too with Vista Ultimate and AveDesk 1.4. I solved it by putting a "Start In" directory in the "Shortcut" tab of the Desklet Properties. In this case, I was having problems with the messenger PidlShortcut. After I put the "Start In" directory, no more error.

I have managed to run Avedesk 1.4 by downloading missing dll-file and placing it in windows system32 directory. Most of the time Avedesk runs correctly, however, there are still some problems left. For instance, from time to time I get an error on a windows shutdown. You can see the evidence of this bug in the attachment.

Furthermore, occasionally Avedesk keeps crashing when a my machine returns from lock, sleep or hibernation state. By the way, I forgot to mention that I have Windows Vista Ultimate x86.

It doesn't work on my Vista PC. I finally got Avedesk to run but it won't show the shortcut... I'm sorry I dont have time to go more in depth right now.

It doesn't work on my Vista PC. I get the following error message:

AVEDESK.EXE - Unable to Locate Component

This application has failed to start because d3dx9_36.dll was not found.

Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

Shot in the dark: This have anything to do with Direct X 9?

I searched the forum but I didn't see anyone with the same dll missing... the post above, the dll is named slightly different?

actually this problem has been reported several times in the first page... the solution found was downloading the dll file and placing it at the avedesk folder

heres some links to the dll file:

One more thing, i was wondering if there's any chance of fixing it in Vista to display things such as file count when using a folder shortcut.

Yeah. I'd like that as well... Why is this feature missing in Vista?

I think it's because there are different labels in Vista but I'm sure it could be included in an update ;)

There's a bug when using the "Open folder windows in a separate process" option in Folder Options.

Im not sure wether this is because I use QTTabBar for my Explorer or not, but unless I have a folder open, Avedesk/Pidl won't open the folder from its shortcut.

For it to work properly I have to turn off the "Open in separate process" option, which is annoying cos when explorer crashes, byebye open folders :P or if a folder crashes, byebye main explorer.exe ~_~

If Im the only one experiencing this, then it may well be because of QTTabBar.

Im running Vista Ultimate x86.

are there any plans on fixing the folder shortcuts in vista so that u can view labels like # of files and folder size like with the recycling bin? or is this something to do with vista that can't be fixed?

Humm .. works great after you added the d3dx9_36.ll to the folder, BUT! somehow it still did not fix the one bug i have for years and i was hoping i was gonna fix it. This bug i kept having is on Vista and also with the SP1 is when i insert a cd in the cd-rom. When the cd is insert into the drive avedesk will automactically crash and shut down, does this happen to anyone else whose also using vista? Is there a fix for it? Please let me know cuz this program is the best i've use by far. Thanks

I worked out why my folders wouldnt open unless I turned off the 'view folders in a separate process' , just needed to add the 'start in' location, then it worked fine xD

I can't believe I missed that for so long :P

Weird bug for me, It's like a rendering issue or something, ha I don't know =P

Only a certain area was showing my desklets, so it looked like I had a desklet and a half. Do I need that d3d9 file? Upgraded from 1.3 and running avescripter and sysstats
