Whoops... Forgot to say which DLLs Smiley Sad

It's PWMTR64V.DLL and PWMTR32V.DLL. Smiley Happy

 

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!?

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

Re: PM 3.4x small scaled battery icon dismissed?

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.
