Another good reason to stay in XP ?

Written by Enigmatux on 08 July 2008 at 15h30
Today, a new application was added to the gallery of CrystalXP. : cool:

It is Vista Rainbar, Vista Sidebar clone for Rainmeter.
You are certainly many to know that it was created by Gavatx, helped by fediaFedia et Legace, who are all members of the community of CrystalXP !

Vista rainbar

Entirely free and easy for using, this sidebar, whose you can change the background between around ten choice, offers many gadgets such as clock, calendar, RSS feeds, weather... with the possibility, for most of them, to customize settings and skins...

And the good news, for those who do not know it yet, is that a few days ago Gavatx has released a new version of his Rainbar, Vista Rainbar V4.3 version ! : party:

Vista rainbar

The improvements :
- added an installer created by Legace : now installation of the sidebar is very easy
- Modification of the appearance of the sun for the gadget Weather : now a sun appears when the weather is "fair"

Available in English or French, the program is easy to install. It takes very little ram therefore does not slow down your computer, and of course, it runs on Windows XP but also as fediaFedia said "Works on Vista 100%" !

For download Vista Rainbar, it is here.

Attention, for installing it, follow the pdf file "Read-me" which is provided with the download, you will discover how the different gadgets function, those which are in beta version, but also known bugs.
By the way, do not hesitate to inform Gavatx of the bugs or errors encountered with the freeware, he will try to correct them and improve Vista Rainbar !

Well the documentations can be found from the address below (download installer, unzip it). Then there is the Rainmeter documentation which has stuff needed to know to make an gadget/skin.

Direct download link:

Or you can just install Rainbar, and it'll be in Program Files/Vista Rainbar.

Please read the "Readme", it explains everything... And do a "Refresh all" to confirm your settings...
