Whoops... Forgot to say which DLLs :(

It's PWMTR64V.DLL and PWMTR32V.DLL. :)

 

I remember hearing something about potential cross-version incompatibilities though.

Thanks,

 

I looked inside the file (with resource hacker) and I could see that there has been a lot of changes since versions 3.31 3.38.

Therefore I guess there will be some cross-version incompatibilities as you have mentioned.

 

But nontheless thank you very much for your help!

 

Perhaps some day the lenovo guys will implement the small battery gauge again!?

 

Greetings, Tobias

Hi! I used the following dlls from Power Manager 3.31 (You don't need to install it, just unpack) to get back slim gauge:

PWMTR32V.DLL, PWMTR64V.DLL, PWMUX32V.DLL

Without the last one I experienced explorer.exe crashes at startup.

Hi,

that sounds great, I was not brave enough to try it on my machine. (Since, as I mentioned earlier, there have been some changes, e.g. some new symbols...)

Did you experience any (other) problems?

 

Which model and which operating system do you use?

 

Greetings, Tobias

I didn't notice any difference, except for that it wasn't possible to add or remove the gauge right-clicking on windows taskbar. You can do it from the Power manager itself though.

I have T420 and T61p with Win 7 Prof x64 both.
