I think I have found the cause for the Smart Taskbar problems several users experienced. If you had any issues with the Smart Taskbar, please install the patch and let me know if the problems went away.

Windows 98/Me:
Windows 2000/XP:

To install the patch, close UltraMon, then extract the ZIP to your UltraMon directory, usually C:\Program Files\UltraMon.

Well, after a couple days of testing with the new patch, I'm beginning to have to same problems with smart taskbar. Bummer.

Only thing that fixes it is to uncheck 'Show tasks from' the monitor and re-check it. Not fun.

Oh well.

So far it has fixed the problem on my XP Pro SP1 setup -- thanks.

Chris, did you try the second patch as well? This fixes an additional problem with the Smart Taskbar.

it says it cannot find RTSultamonhook.dll,
i'm using the demo version and i have some problems with the secondary taskbar being larger than the primary.

Make sure you have extracted the ZIP to your UltraMon directory, otherwise it won't work.

Regarding taskbar size: on Windows XP with visual styles, the size should match the Windows taskbar exactly. With classic look, it might be off by a few pixels.

it works on some styles but not others (i have a patched uxtheme.dll) so I am able to use non-microsoft styles. It looks realy cool, except the ultramon taskbar is about 6 pixels to big on some of them.

Please let me know which visual styles have the problem. If possible, I'll fix this in one of the next releases.
