Artist's Note

One of the first things I wanted to do when I downloaded rainmeter was use it as a replacement for the Windows taskbar, and I was pretty disappointed when I couldn't. I'm pretty sure there are quite a few others in the same boat, so I made this.

I deserve no credit for this config; it's just an amalgam of .exes that I found the Rainmeter forums. In fact, I'm positive some, if not all, of them have been made into configs already. All I did was bundle them together and map them to some images from Enigma, and a menu I ganked from a skin called Pixies, for convenience.

- (obviously) you need Enigma for this to work out-of-box
- This has only been tested on Windows 7; I wouldn't be surprised if aspects don't work on other versions. Use at your discretion.
- TrayPopup.exe is recognized by Avast as a PUP or some jazz, but it's fine as far as I can tell.
- ViGlance OneStep (the floating icons) triggers a UAC prompt. Google fixes if this bothers you.

Not really working the way it should. For me the popup tray just opens my firewall's settings, and when I clicked "dummy icons" it installed some stupid ViGlance thing to my computer that messed up my taskbar.

I'm also unsure how to use this to modify the skin on the start menu.

ViGlance doesn't "install," it just runs in the tray. It just displays the active programs over the taskbar, so you can still see them when you hide the taskbar.

The tray problem is probably your firewall preventing the program from running.

This doesn't affect the start menu at all, it just runs an exe that opens it, the same way the start orb does. If you want to reskin the start menu, find a theme on devinatart or something.

My bad, I guess ViGlance does install. Either way, just close it in the system tray.
