RAM CPU (+DISK) Taskbar v2.2.2 by anonymous-thing RAM CPU (+DISK) Taskbar v2.2.2 by anonymous-thing

A simple program that changes your taskbar into a dynamic color-changing resource meter!

Latest Version: v2.2.2 - Added automatic updating and single-instance enforcement.

View your CPU, RAM or Active Disk Usage as a dynamic bar representation... in the form of your Taskbar!

Auto-check updates: will check for updates daily
Show settings at startup: open the settings window whenever you run the program
Fade colours: whenever it changes from one colour to another, it will blend the colours in a smooth animation
Hide tray icon: removes the tray icon from the system tray. Closing it will require ending the process, and to restore the icon you must edit settings.rcts in a text editor and change it to:

appearing as such: 

HideIcon    False

Split by width/height: arrange the two bars side-by-side or on top of one another
Left-aligned/Bottom-aligned: anchor the relevant bar to the left or bottom of the screen (depending what side of the screen your Taskbar is on)
Refresh rate: how often the bar updates its values in milliseconds

Supports: Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1

For Windows 7, works best with AeroPlain (irrelevant for Windows 8 and 8.1)

Enjoy, comment, :+fav:, and :points:!

I've added the program to the "Startup" folder of my Start Menu so that it starts automatically when I open my session. But I remarked that it crashes when it opens automatically, but not when I open it manually... A bugfix would be appreciated. It will also allow us to test the new auto-update feature!

Not working here in Windows 8.1, it crashes when I try to open.

How so? Just a plain old crash, no error messages?

Awesome *o*

Something I looked for a long time, finally found it.
Easy and lightweight, just perfect, for my use it shows enough stats.

But not sure if its a Bug in the program or an unfixable problem in Windows, but when I press the minimize all-button in the right corner of the Taskbar, the Rambar hides, too.
It appears if i maximize any window.
Would be nice to get it fixed, but its only a small bug, I could live with it if i have to :)

PS: No native english, but I tried my best :)

Unfortunately, the whole point of the "Show desktop" button is to show the desktop, and on Windows it actually brings the desktop on top of any applications you are running. So it's what you called an "unfixable problem in Windows", I guess.

When clicked on the download link it gives the following message

Are there any other links for download available?

It looks like it's probably your ISP or country blocking it - download works fine for me. Here's a mirror:…

great little utility I found very useful. The problem is that settings are not applied after saving and also after i exit the program and restart it.

I am using v2.2.2 on Windows 8 x64.

What could be the problem? Thank you!
