OK maybe I am crazy or dont know vista well enough, HELP

Postby woody » Mon Jun 18, 2007 7:08 am

Hey guys, I just bought barca, what a great app. :)

My simple problem is this, I look in my c drive, under program files and then barca2, there is no skins directory anywhere. I want to use a new one I downloaded, what am I missing here?

Thanks

:!: Have a look under C:\Users\your Username\AppData\Roaming\Barca\Skins.

Vista doesn't allow writing to Program files, so that's why it changed. You'll have to save your skin there in order to be able to use it.

Hope that helps. :wink:

How do you view them? With Explorer?

:!: Is it set to show hidden directories/system files too?
I may be wrong, since I'm still learning about Vista too on my laptop. :?

There's no other directory within your username, like Application Data (link to AppData).

Yep I found it now, I added Mutt to the skins folder but all it did when selected was change the colors, what about the icons?

Thanks

Ah, nice to know you found it.
Quite an adventure to explore Vista. It will take some time to get used to it. :)

When you select Change Pane Layout, choose Toolbar and check 'Display skin's toolbar' and press Apply. Now those icons will change. 8)

Thanks again, On a related note, I have been playing with poco/barca for the last 24 hours and cant believe the range of functions versus the cost, 39-59 dollars is ridiculously cheap.

I have been on a 2 day mission for new email client since thunderbird has went corrupt on me 2 times already, enought of that nonsense. Thanks alot eric.

I agree, the price is relatively cheap for what you're getting. :)

I've encountered some other users who are experiencing exactly the same since the last update. :?
Thanks alot eric.
The pleasure's all mine Woody. :wink:
