That what I expect :)

I can test it, if you want, I would be glad to use it.

This is very much experimental, so when it crashes it will take down explorer with it. That means all open explorer windows as well as the taskbar. Only for experienced users.

Recovery steps in case you need it:
  • ctrl + escape will bring up task manager
  • File -> Run new task -> explorer
  • You may need to rename the dll to prevent explorer from loading it, which you can do from the "Browse" dialog
  • You can exit explorer by ctrl+shift+right click on the task bar (there will be an option that says "Exit Explorer")
Install:
  • close all other rainmeter instances
  • create a new portable install
  • copy over files in the attachment, and replace (only windows 8.1+ x64 for now)
  • run "Taskbar_Test" to make sure it works, then close it
  • open an administrative cmd prompt, navigate to portable install directory and type "regsvr32 Taskbar.dll"
  • right click on taskbar, select "toolbars"
  • right click on taskbar, select "toolbars" (yes, you have to do this twice)
  • select "RainBar"
Uninstall:
  • open an administrative cmd prompt, navigate to portable install directory and type "regsvr32 /u Taskbar.dll"
