7+ Taskbar Tweaker for Windows 8.1 Update 1: early alpha version

An update for Windows 8.1, called Update 1 or the Spring Update, was officially released by Microsoft a couple of days ago. This update broke compatibility with 7+ Taskbar Tweaker. I’ve published a post, 7+ Taskbar Tweaker and Windows 8.1 Update 1, explaining the reasons for the breakage.

Today, I’m happy to announce that the first pre-release alpha version is available for testing! If you have donated for the effort, you can get the link here (May 10: link removed).

Currently, only the 32-bit version is available. I hope to get the 64-bit version done within the following week. Stay tuned!

Update (April 17): The 64-bit version is available as well! Please try it, and report any issues you stumble upon.

Update (April 26): A new version is available, which fixes a couple of issues. Also, this is the first alpha version which can be installed, unlike previous alpha version which were available as portable versions only.

Update (May 2): A public beta version is available here.

Update (May 10): 7+ Taskbar Tweaker v4.5, a stable version with Windows 8.1 Update 1 support, was released.

    Thanks RaMMicHaeL you rule.
    Your program, or the lack of it actually, for 8.1 update 1 was the only thing holding me back from upgrading.
    The vanilla taskbar is just horrible and I can’t imagine using it ever again.

  9. Hi RaMMicHaeL
    7+ taskbar tweaker v4.4.9.6 BETA problem windows explorer crashed

  10. Event viewer Level: Error
    WUDFHost (2200) An attempt to create the file “C:\Windows\system32\edbtmp.log” failed with system error 5 (0x00000005): “Access is denied. “. The create file operation will fail with error -1032 (0xfffffbf8).

    what is this ?

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      I’m not sure, but it looks like an issue with your operation system. You might want to ask about it on some Windows forums, perhaps somebody will be able to come up with an answer.

  11. i dont think problem on my operation system!! last month without 7+ taskbar never problem on my windows 8.1 update but i want install beta v4.4.9.6 random crash windows explorer!!

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      I understand. In order to help you, I need either a way to reproduce it, or a crash report. Please try to solve your issue with the Event Viewer, and post here the crash report.

  12. it is stable 7+ Taskbar Tweaker v4.5 ??? will not crash windows explorer?

    • RaMMicHaeL says:

      It’s not different than the most recent beta, so it shouldn’t make a difference. Be aware, though, that you’re the only user to report this kind of issue, so perhaps there’s a problem with your OS after all.

  13. hey this version is v4.5 not problem 10 times restart yes true support win8.1 update 🙂 thank for update stable
