News Archive


Here you can find old news and information from the very first begin of Notebook BatteryInfo to present. This page is only intended for people who are interested in the beginnings of Notebook BatteryInfo. The Story of Notebook BatteryInfo began 19. June 2005, and it is still ongoing. I found the news of the old Notebook BatteryInfo site some time ago and therefore I created this news archive. News from October 2008 and older were originally on the old Notebook BatteryInfo site.

At the moment I'm updating Notebook BatteryInfo Suite and also Notebook BatteryInfo SmartBar to make both compatible to Windows 8.1. Unfortunately Microsoft made changes in the API that need this update. Notebook BatteryInfo SmartBar will also get a few updates that were done in the Suite in the last 4 updates.
For this reasons Notebook BatteryInfo Suite Version 1.4 Beta 5 and Notebook BatteryInfo SmartBar Version 1.0 Beta 2 will come very soon.

News about the Notebook BatteryInfo Suite 1.4 Beta 1 Windows 8 x64 issues. I guess all issues on Windows 8 x64 are identified.
At the moment one issue is not finally fixed, since I identified this issue as bug in the Microsoft Framwork I use. Also the Framework of Visual C++ Professional 2012 seems to be affected. Currently I'm not sure if I use the workaround I did for the problem identification as final solution. The problem is reported at Microsoft Connect and currently I'm waiting for an answer.

As I stated in my September message, a lot things happened in the 2nd half of this year! I reworked Notebook BatteryInfo Suite and also Notebook BatteryInfo SmartBar. Notebook BatteryInfo Suite is now x64 capable. The flickering of the Notebook BatteryInfo SmartBar Popup Window should also be fixed.

Notebook BatteryInfo Suite Version 1.4 Beta 1 is available for download. This version supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and also Windows 8 as x86 and x64 version.
Also Notebook BatteryInfo Smartbar 1.0 Beta 1 is available for download. This version also supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and also Windows 8 as x86 and x64 version. Notebook BatteryInfo SmartBar is a native code COM component that extends the Taskbar without using bloated Frameworks like .NET.

Both Software packages have an combined installer that is x86 and x64 capable. The installer detects the operating system architecture and installs the correct components. The x64 Version of Notebook BatteryInfo Suite and Notebook BatteryInfo Smartbar uses true x64 binaries as executable now WOW64 backward compatibility stuff.

Users receiving a contributor license before November 2012 needs an updated license file to use this with Windows 8 and/or x64 systems. Just email the old license file to me and I modify the license file.

Time goes by and I was setting up a new development machine. I was testing Notebook BatteryInfo Suite and also Notebook BatteryInfo Smartbar with the RTM of Windows 8 Professional (x86) on a VM. I also did a few tests on a Windows 7 x64 system.

A few screenshots taken on a Windows 8 Professional RTM:





At the moment I have no schedule for a new version that works with all Windows versions (Windows XP up to Windows 8) on x86 and x64 systems. There are a few issues that need to be fixed in the current code for the new version.
My plan for a new version is a setup that is able to handle both x86 and x64. The setup script must be reworked completely to be compatible with x64 systems.
All this open points takes a lot time I have to spend in my free time, and this project is not my one and only interest.

A few additional words to Notebook BatteryInfo Smartbar. The reason for testing the SmartBar on a Windows 8 system was that until the release of Visual Studio 2012 and the Windows 8 SDK the IDeskband and IDeskband2 interface were marked as not available in Windows 8. IDeskband is not anymore marked as not available for Windows 8. Therefore Windows 8 has only one strange point, the missing of the Start button. But this is an different story...

I hope the next version will support all Windows versions in 32bit and 64 bit very soon. For the 64bit tests I need a new HDD since I don't want to delete my current PC setup. Unfortunately the HDD prices are still extremely high and I definately do not pay more than twice of the price like the price was in September for a HDD.

Notebook BatteryInfo Suite 1.3 Beta 10 is available for download. This version fixes a few minor issues.

The Codebase of Beta 10 is now 100% compatible to Visual Studio 2010 SP1, even if the current release is still build with Visual Studio 2008 SP1. This Codebase is full 64bit capable and should work with all Workstation Operating Systems that are in active support by Microsoft (Windows XP SP3 and above). I hope in one of the next releases I will hopefully support all this Operating System Versions in 32bit and 64bit. At the moment I do not have the time to modify the Installer Script or build all parts for 64bit and do final tests.

Notebook BatteryInfo Smartbar has been discontinued a few days ago. The reason was the lack of interest in the past 6 month. Maybe in the future when I have more time I'll give Notebook BatteryInfo SmartBar a second try?

Notebook BatteryInfo 1.3 Beta 4 is available for download. An additional note to the busy people working for download and review sites. The version of this release is 1.3 Beta 4 not 1.3.0.195 or something like that. Therefore do not "rename" the original version number with a version number of a single Notebook BatteryInfo component.

As stated in the comment of January, the language files of older versions are not compatible anymore with Notebook BatteryInfo 1.3 Beta 4. The language file handling is now completely different to the previous beta versions. Future versions will now be more flexible in case of adding or deleting lanugage strings. Since the language file structure will not be changed anymore, I'd like to ask for passing localized language files to me. I make this files available on the download page. The build in help of Notebook BatteryInfo contains a description on how to make an own set of language files.

This version now supports embedded Task Links for both default languages to show the Task Links below the applet icon of the control panel. For own localizations it is now possible to create own Task Link files to have the desired lanuage in the control panel also.

Notebook BatteryInfo 1.3 Beta 4 has a few small enhancements in the Taskbar Panel display options, the build in help is finished. This version also fixes a few bugs listed in the bug section.

Notebook BatteryInfo SmartBar 0.3 Beta 1 is also available for download. But please note this is an experimental software!

A few weeks ago I needed a "Deskband Panel" in the Windows Taskbar. Therefore I developed a framework for the handling of "Deskband Panels" in combination with MFC. When I had a little time I added a few controls used by Notebook BatteryInfo and the Powermanagement Framework and the Notebook BatteryInfo SmartBar was born.


This SmartBar is a small Shell Extension and will only use less ressources. The current distribution of Notebook BatteryInfo has a Setup of ~2MB and needs more that 5MB HDD space. The current SmartBar will only need a little space (< 500kb) since no configuration is possible. Like Notebook BatteryInfo the SmartBar does not use oversized Frameworks like .NET.

At the moment the Notebook BatteryInfo SmartBar is only a little experiment. I currently do not know if I will ever release this piece of Software to the public. If I'll do it, this SmartBar could be perfect for low performance Notebooks or Netbooks with limited performance.

Notebook BatteryInfo 1.3 Beta 3 is available for download. This version solves a few small bugs. The Beta 3 is the next step to a stable version in a coming release version. This version does not contain any new features or supports more operations systems.

Current plannings of the next Beta will bring a few internal changes. I'll exchange the complete language file handling. The reason is it will be easier to make changes in the language file (add / change / delete strings without having problems with future versions since no fixed IDs will be used in the new language files). The new language file handling will use the Microsoft XML parser more efficiant, than the current language file handling code. The new version of the language file handling will use XPath for locating specific strings. Therefore the language XML file format will be different to the current format.
The next step is finish the estimation of the runtime and charging time of the battery. If this part is finished Notebook BatteryInfo is 99.99% finished, and only fine tuning is necessary.

At the moment the traffic for this page and the download is very limited. If the download traffic for the current month is depleted than you have to wait to the next month. I will not send any files by eMail! I hope in the next few month this situation will be better and the download traffic is not depleted after a few days.

The last few month I did not have very much time to finish a lot open points to reach my goals for a public version of Notebook BatteryInfo. The custom switching of the Windows Vista and Windows 7 power plans is finally implemented and works just fine.

Open/Close section 24. March 2009

Again a lot things happened since my last information update in Noveber 2008. The "problem" with the DWM (Desktop Window Manager) is more or less solved since January. A little bit "finetuning" is necessary but the solution works well. I use Notebook BatteryInfo on my Vista Notebook since November without any problems.

I also have a PC running Windows 7 - Build 7000 (32 bit). The Version 1.3 of Notebook BatteryInfo runs very well with Windows 7 without changing anything in the code. The tests were made on a desktop PC with a special version of the Notebook BatteryInfo Powermanagement Subsystem to simulate a Notebook PC with a battery. Since the Windows 7 Powermanagement seems to be the same like the Windows Vista Powermanagement I do not expect any problems.

Finally there are not a lot open points in Notebook BatteryInfo development. The Profile handling of Windows Vista and Windows 7 is different to Windows XP. Therefore the Profile switching is currently not available for Windows Vista and Windows 7. Also the repainting on Aero Glass needs a little bit "finetuning" to be perfect. The own estimation of the remaining runtime and chargetime must also be improved or finished. Finally the Online Help and Setup script has to be done.

Open/Close section 01. November 2008

A lot things happened since the last update of Notebook BatteryInfo that was in January 2007. I moved to a new location. Therefore I had a lot other things to do than do anything on Notebook BatteryInfo. 

In mid of 2008 I had contact to a user regarding the "Outlook Shell crash" problem, and I made the decision to fix this problem, since the Codebase of Version 1.3 had also this problem.

When I began to find out the reason of the Shell crash, I began to convert the first parts of the Code from Visual C++ 6.0 to Visual Studio C++ 2008. Most parts of Notebook BatteryInfo are now converted to Visual C++ 2008.

A few month ago I got a new Notebook with Microsoft Windows Vista. I "unlocked" the old Version 1.2 for using it under Microsoft Windows Vista, since primary I made the Taskbar Panel for using it myself. The only bad thing was this version did not support Aero Glass since normal GDI functions does not support the Alpha channel used to make the Taskbar transparent.


("Unlocked" Version 1.2)

For this reason I made new changes in the Taskbar Codebase to support the Alpha Channel for correct painting. But at least I currently have repaint problems since I can't repaint parts of the Taskbar directly. The DWM (Desktop Window Manager) makes this stuff and I currently do not have an easy way to perform a repaint. For this reason the Taskbar Panel is still unfinished.


(Version 1.3)

At the moment the Taskar Panel works with Windows Vista. But there are still bugs or problems to be solved. Currently I do not know how long this will take.
The other parts of Notebook BatteryInfo should work with Windows Vista without any problems.

Open/Close section 15. October 2008

A few facts regarding the coming new version:
  • The "Shell crash" bug should be solved with the new version 1.3 codebase

  • The codebase 1.3 does not support Windows 2000

Currently I'm looking for a kind user having the shell crash problem if the "New mail" button of Microsoft Outlook is pressed. Until today I could not reproduce this problem. For this reason I'm looking for a helping hand. I'd pass a debug version and an other test programm to this user to create a log during the shell crash. For this test a Microsoft tool has to be installed for creating the log (Microsoft Sysinternals DEbugView). The user should be experienced and should know how to use a Windows PC. If someone is interested and having this problem please contact me via eMail.
Unfortunately the version 1.3 is also affected with this problem. Therefore the release of version 1.3 is skipped.

  • A lot things happen, and most work of the coding is done. I guess 98% are finished. For this reason I hope I'll release a first Beta version soon. This Beta version will have almost all features of the final version.
  • The new version will support up to 4 batteries, like I promised it in the past. The final version can be used with any language. Notebook BatteryInfo is completely Unicode compatible. The language settings will be made with an XML file. No programming skills are necessary to create such a file. The screenshots I posted a few month ago show the new version very good.
  • At the moment I will not promise a date I can not keep. I have to make a setup script so install the Software correctly.
  • Since I had requests for using Notebook BatteryInfo with Windows vista I can say in the (hopefully not too far) future a version for Windows Vista (32 Bit) may be possible. The technical part should not be a problem. I made a test build of the current software 1.3 and tested it on Windows vista, the problems are not impossible to fix.
  • A 64 Bit Version of Notebook BatteryInfo is not planned, and I don't think there will be one.

  • Screenshot of Taskbar Panel test version



    Some facts to this test version of Notebook BatteryInfo:

    • The development tool Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 SP6 works with Windows Vista without real problems!
    • There is no Windows SDK for Visual C++ 6.0 containing Windwos Vista headers
    • Aero Glass did not work with the Taskbar Panel. There were display problems generated by the Alpha Channel, which is not supported by the controls of the Taskbar Panel.
    • Windows Vista UAC displayed some notifications, this should'nd be.
    • Since Windows Vista has a different design of the control panel applets the control panel applet of Notebook BatteryInfo does not "fit" to the new Vista look and feel.
    • All Notebook specific stuff was not tested since the test environment was a desktop PC.

    • Own calculations of battery charging time and remaining runtime
    • Graphical display of the battery charging and battery drain
    • New language interface based on XML, which make it possible to support any language, since only a XML file has to be changed
    • Support of more than one batteries

  • For the implementation supporting more than one battery I need a few test persons. The test persons must have a Notebook which supports more than one battery (the Notebook must have 2 batteries at the same time in the system). If someone would like to helpme I'd be happy to receive an email. I'll make a test program available and a short instruction of the things I like to know. I need a few screenshots of the test program under specific circumstances. The test progrm does not make any changes in the PC system or saves any data on the system.

    Last week the transfer limit of 1GB per month was reached. That's why this website was not reachable for a short time. Next month I will seperate the website contents and the downloads to keep this website available. The download in the download section was directly linked by other websites. This resulted the high traffic. At the moment I do not have the time to find an other free webhoster without forced ads. Therefore this website is not available if the limit is reached. Notebook BatteryInfo is available at various download sites and can be found using Google.
    The last few weeks I received a lot requests for implementing a "remaining runtime estimation" in Notebook BatteryInfo for Notebooks not supporting the display of the remaining runtime. This implementation is possible and will be available in one of the next major releases. To have a acceptable accuracy it is necessary to make a few (planned) changes and futher examination.
