Lenovo Companion App Battery Gauge Toolbar Windows 10 installation?

2015-09-03, 20:24 PM

Hello,

 

I was out and about playing with a Thinkpad in a retail store and was pleasantly surprised to see that the battery gauge toolbar was back! 

 

As such I searched and dug up to discover this:

https://support.lenovo.com/bd/bn/documents/ht100495

 

In the picture there it states that upon installing the new companion app there is an option to also install the toolbar.

 

I am on a Lenovo E431 with Windows 10 and have tried reinstalling the app and have not received this option.

 

 

If anyone has any idea on how to get this battery gauge installed I would greatly appreciate it, as I prefer it to the tiny battery icon in windows. 

 

Thanks!

Solved! See the solution

So Lenovo finally updated my support page and the toolbar (ver. 1.0.21.0) can be downloaded here:

 

https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/bg10ww21.exe

 

However, I was running the toolbar version before this and after installing the updated version the toolbar is missing from my toolbar options in the taskbar.

 

The previous version I was running was this one (v. 1.0.17.0):

 

https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/bg10ww17.exe

 

Which I tried reinstalling and also still have no battery guage toolbar to select.

 

 

 

Does anyone know where this installs so I can simply find it in my system?

Hello Brisky86,

This happens as guys from Lenovo messed up with installation and forgot to fix one on CustomActions in their Install Shield project.

There is MSI file (installation) with transform files for different languages inside the package. You should use it.

 

Or you can download archive which fixed installation package. I had not touched original MSI and just edited 1033.mst to include all necessary properties for nice installation.

@Daffy-Duck:

Please note, that the linked version is outdated. The recent version is

https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/bg10ww45.exe

 

But the new version will be installed into a different folder on your computer.

Coming from 2019 and this thread still works, especially the link. For those who want the battery gauge back in Windows 10, this is the right place. Thanks for getting back my battery gauge!

Note, the standalone Battery Gauge utility/toolbar has been End of Life for quite a while now. Its successor is now built into the "Lenovo Vantage" Windows 10 store app. Lenovo Vantage also contain other utilities like system update and health and support. Everyone should move to the new program if at all possible. 

 

It can be found in the Windows 10 app store, no Microsoft account is required.
