Does that make sense? And the "flickering" is normal when embedding. The script actually grabs coverjuke, then minimizes it, makes some calculations on where to put the window, then maximizes it again. It has to do all these things after coverjuke has started though. I will look into trying to make it flicker less by hiding the window until it is maximized. Maybe V1.3 in the future.
I too have used all the default locations.
Edit: I now have Coverjuke loading. Here's what worked for me:
1. Installed the current version of RideRunner, including the dll files that come with the current download;
2. Uninstalled Coverjuke 1.53 using add/remove programs;
3. Removed every reference to "coverjuke" and "coverflow" from the registry; and
4. Reinstalled Coverjuke 1.53.
I wish I knew which of those actions did the trick, but I now have it loading on two computers. I'm having a couple of issues, including 100% CPU load (100% on a P4, 2.2 GHZ, with 1 GB Ram. The Athlon XP 2800+ 2.08 GHZ with 1 GB RAM runs at 20%. WTF? Is there that much difference between the two chips?), non-working scroll bar and inability to flip albums to see songs or to play albums. I'll see if I can sort those issues out.
-I'm not sure what the issue was either. My script will load coverjuke if you set the "CJ_dirPath" variable correctly in your skin.ini. This is the only way my script knows where to look to execute the coverjuke.exe. There should be no "coverflow" in your registry as a result of my script.
-As for 100% CPU, that must be your system, because mine has used a maximum of about 14% on my centrino laptop.
-If you read the first post you will know that the issue with the scrollbar is a known bug that I do not have control over.
-As for flipping the albums to see the songs or the ability to play the album when clicked will depend on your "COVERJUKEACTION" variable, which you also should have defined in your skin.ini, as well as if you set up coverjuke's path to external player as "cover.exe"
-Quick question, are you running a full version of XP or is this a partial "n-lited" version?
i'm like ws6vert, i have this in my skin works great , cpu about 9% - 11%, i have a popup that displays the Playlist of selected album, to which you can select just the 1 track or all. i get a little flicker when the popup goes away but thats due to the popup effect i have in place.

ws6vert, i was thinking about this today....i have a minimized xp install (used n-lite) and also tweeked my system by turning off a number of "uneccessary" services. this may be the root of my problem.
anyone have any idea which services are absolutely needed? i'll try a "hit an miss" approach otherwise.
btw: yes, only the skin is loading for me. coverjuke does not start, according to taskman.
ws6vert et al, i re-installed a full copy of windows (as opposed to the minimal install that i created with n-lite) and coverjuke works! whether it was an errantly set service, a missing component, or something else, a full copy of windows is now my starting point. i'll tweek from here.
now, i'd like to see coverjuke stay within the limits of dfx4's album/list view window, but that's for another time.....
thanks again for you efforts!
