Is Free Launch Bar dead?

Is Free Launch Bar dead?
Hi,

I was a huge fan of Free Launch Bar for several years, back when I was using my old computer running Windows 2000. It did everything I needed, and worked flawlessly. Then I bought myself a new computer running Vista, and have been waiting for FLB to be updated to work with Vista..

And waiting... and waiting...

And now I'm becoming a bit concerned. Despite having a significant known bug that prevents proper operation with Vista (which has been available for around 2 years now), Free Launch Bar has still not been updated to work properly with Vista.

In fact, it has not been updated at all in over four years. Sad

Is Free Launch Bar completely dead? I understand if you don't want to spend your time updating a free product, but it would be nice at least to let users know that it's dead, and that there are no plans to ever update it. That way, at least we know that there is no point to waiting any longer hoping for an update to FLB.

I really liked this software under Windows 2000, but if it's never going to work right with my new computer, it's not useful to me any more. I'm sorry to say this, Yuri, but I'm almost ready to give up on FLB. :cry:

Please consider fixing FLB to work correctly with Vista. Thanks!

I'm sorry for dalay with the Free Launch Bar. Currently I begin the process of the cutting off the TLB to make the new version of FLB. This is not a trivial process Sad and this takes a lot of time.

Free Launch Bar will be updated!

Progress report for FLB?
Yuri,

I'd just like to know if you have made any progress on a new, Vista-compatible version of FLB. What is its status?

Please keep us informed, one way or the other. I'm eager to be able to use FLB again on my Vista-based laptop.

Thanks!

FLB 2.0 works great so far!
Just an update:

I've been working with FLB 2.0 under Vista 32-bit for most of the day and it has behaved flawlessly so far.

Nice job, Yuri! It was worth the wait! Smile

Thanks again...
