1. best avedesk ver 4 everyday use 2: stability issues


Recommended Posts

Hi there.

A little introduction:

I installed and used Avedesk 1.3 + avescripter (weather plugin only) and it was crashing in 1 of 3 cases after in 1-10 minutes after windows boot (it made desktop freeze and all desktop and avedesk items undragable till i kill it with taskman). Even after i turned off weather plugin i was still gettin' those problems.

Later i found avescripter update on official site but now im always getting "Eng program - aveclosebutton" message @ windows shutdown.

I tryed to use 1.4 and installed dx9 library but it loads corrupted widgets. For instance: 1 of 4 pidshortcuts in theme + without text, and tray icon became corupted.

My h/w is: WinXPSp3En P4-3G(HT)/1Gb/Radeon9500.

(I dunno wheter its a bug, so didn't post it to bugs thread).

So now i have some questions for you guys.

1. Which build are you using 4 everyday and can recommend to me?

2. Am i right when installing avescripter and then update to it which i got from avedesk.org or will i need to get the newone elseware? (didn't find it in Avescripter section)

2. Is it always stable or sometimes you're still gettin' errors/freeze/no responce, etc.?

3. Which other progs can do mac-like desktop icons (with size/file quantity measure, etc.) like Avedesk?

All advices, thoughts, etc. are welcome. Thx in advance.

It's supposed to be stable, that is no frequent crashes, freezes etc. Try the 2.0b version as suggested.

As for alternatives, you have Yahoo! Widgets. And DesktopX too. Take your pick. Avedesk used to be the least resource hungry and most stable for me, though since the other apps are in development that might have changed.

Hmm... When you got avescript crashing on your computer, what desklet are you using? You mentioned weather, but then you said you removed it and it still crashes?

You should try to use the avedesk 2.0. It should be on the same website.

Yep, it was still crashing without any avescripter-enabled plugins.

Firstly i dloaded avedesk 1.3 from an official site (avedesk.org) and it was constantly crashing for me, then i dloaded it from softpedia and it seemed to be ok. Mb im wrong about my conclusion, buy where is the best to get the stable 1.3 build? Avedesk.org is dead now.

And where is to get the lastest avescripter (i found avescripter update - do i need to instal it too after avescripter?).

And do i need to do smth after unpacking and running Avedesk.exe besides deleting languages directory (i don't need it).

Btw, do i need to add this to registry? And shat does that options do?

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionShell ExtensionsApproved]

"{6DD050D8-FBDF-4562-AB05-8BF879FAE89E}"="AveInst Extension"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionShell ExtensionsApproved]

"{F756AF2A-EB0E-4D42-9495-B61BD6D99B82}"="AveDesk Preview Extension"Btw

I even tryed beta 2.0 with pid shortcuts only (some folders and my comp/recycle)and with no avescripter.

It crashes 1 of 5 times (when im logging on or logging off), but it still crashes.

The same situation is with 1.3, it crashes like 2.0, mb slightly less or slightly more.

Is it only me having such problems?
