I do have some trouble with it tho I use win200 proffesional sp4 and it does just show a dark figure when there is no skin imported from a windows blinds file. but when a skin is applied for example i applied XPProfessionalvIII it skinned the taskbar prety nicely but it still needs work. The start button was skinned ok and theat was good. but the taskbar kind of resizes itself which i think should be fixed too. Lastly the clock doesnt appear unless i resize the taskbar.
But otherwize good Job!!!
edit: I tried another skin and the skinning worked as good as i wanted it the only major problem still is that the clock cannot be seen unless the takbar is resized.

And if I'm not mistaken, the system menu is not being skinned anymore. But I disabled it anyway.
All this is happening on the same Win98SE system (with some system files upgraded) - Pentium III @ 800MHz, 240 MB RAM, 16MB on-board SiS 630 video.

Although you lately fixed some issues under Win2k, the 98 ones are still there, three of which are quite major, namely:
- Explorer crash on exit
- Systray icons missing
- Resource leak/excessive usage
Another disturbing issue is the fact that auto-hide doesn't work at all with TClock3, so any maximized window will be behind the taskbar. Given that I always keep the taskbar at the top, access to min/max/close titlebar buttons is denied.
Recently, while testing 0.3.0-0.3.2, I noticed that simply hovering quicklaunch icons raises CPU usage to 100%.
And one other bug I noticed is that the taskbar height can be resized to a value of zero. I simply disabled the sizebar and played dragging the taskbar to raise and lower its height; at one point I dropped it while it was completely invisible (zero height). It couldn't be restored, neither by reenabling the sizebar, nor by closing TClock3 - a reboot was necessary.
I have to mention that I've installed the '256 color' patched explorer.exe (4.72.3612.1710) - dunno if that has any impact on TClock3's behavior.
The above is just a quick review of the most important issues that are present on my system. Only intended as a feedback. Please keep up the good work and hopefully you'll be able to find and fix the 98 issues.

i cant to seem to get it working you know...
could you please let me know?
I've been able to get things like WindowBlinds button halos to work (though not perfectly). Skinning things like window borders isn't implemented. The reason (for now, at least) that TClock3 has to know about border images is because, if you're using WindowBlinds, it has to know where the max/min/close buttons are.
