Issues with 2.03

Now 2.03 executes, but it has a serious problem for me: Have Windows 7 Home Premium, up to date. I have my taskbar on the right, set to AutoHide. It is fairly wide. After I start Shybar, and move cursor to the right edge so that the taskbar shows, then I move cursor to the left side of the shown taskbar, the taskbar hides. I have not moved the cursor off the taskbar, just to the left 1/3 of it. Therefore I cannot click on some taskbar items that are on the left side of the taskbar. I have to manually kill Shybar to fix this.

Have you tried adjusting coolspot sensitivity to its highest setting?

The only setting in Shybar that is not greyed out is "Autostart with Windows". Everything else is greyed and I cannot adjust anything.

Please check that "Auto-hide the taskbar" is selected in Windows' "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties".

I really like this! I was getting really annoyed at that one column of pixels on my nice background thanks a lot!

only i have a few small problems:
-I am running 2 screens, however I have my taskbar on my secondary screen. but shybar doesn't pick up on this, and when i drag the hotspot and coldspot sliders, it will mark the right areas, but on my primary screen instead of on my secondary screen.
-When I move my mouse away from the taskbar too quickly, it will not play the taskbar hiding animation from windows, and in turn also not play the taskbar appearing animation

thanks again for making this program ;D it is so awesome, and thanks for reading my reply.

edit: I wanted to point out that this works fine on multiple monitors, that is, if you have the taskbar on the bottom. but i have my taskbar on the left of my screen ;D and for some reason it doesn't detect that properly, but when i move the taskbar to the bottom of my secondary screen it works fine.

note that I have my primary screen on the right, and my secondary screen on the left. I have the task bar on the left hand side of my left, secondary screen. Works fine if i move the taskbar to the bottom side of the secondary screen

I just wanted to say you are an absolute legend.
This program works perfectly on windows 8.1

Edit: It seems to draw focus away from other software when starting.
I have it starting with Kodi (formerly xbmc) to hopefully lock down the computer as much as possible for a HTPC. Kodi starts before Shybar and it steals the focus.

Hi,

do this have a silent install switch when installing.

Lord3: use xbmc launcher as that will do what you would like in HTPC environment.

Thanks
