xBar for Windows - Releases

Monday, March 6th, 2023 @1:30PM,   Releases

An updated version of xBar for Windows is now available for download.  This release includes usability enhancements, fixes to issues, and organizational help.

Fixes / Changes

  • Distribution is now x64 (64-bit) - Microsoft is moving away from 32-bit Windows installs and 32-bit versions using Shell API calls can receive unusual results, such as retrieving the path to the shortcut's default icon.  Windows can return a value pointing to the 'Program Files (x86)' folder.
  • xBar now automatically creates the Pinned Taskbar Shortcuts category, which includes all valid links found on the Windows Taskbar.
  • Changed the code which detects the Topmost Window (enumerates all top most windows).
  • Fixed Browse for Shortcut's Path when an existing path includes arguments.
  • Fixed ChooseFile(*) functionality.  It will, regardless of the file's existence, parse out and include the original filename + file extension.
  • Built against the latest version of Visual Studio 2022 and latest vcpkg libraries.

A single end-user license (two installs) can be purchased (securely) for $9.95.  You can download the fully-functional, nag-screen-free, 30 day trial version (No registration necessary) for FREE. As always, updates & upgrades are free for Registered Users.
