I LOVE T-clock.
Vision problems make it just the perfect solution.
Image is how I format mine.
Using WhiteTigX version, tho not the most recent.  It works fine.

OK, working now.

After I installed the C++ redistributables, I was getting a different error, but was away from it for a day and now it loads fine.

All solved though I know not how.

You need to install the MS Visual C++ 2010 redistributable package for the bitness (x86/x64) you're running.

Ahso.  Off to look.

Understand.

It confused me since it was you talking about the new version and the first post says
"Download is still only available here."

Latest build v2.3.2 seems to be running just fine on Windows 10 x86 b10074

Stoic, I have lost track.  Is WhiteTigX or you or both doing the current work on this?
In post 1, I get a 404 for the link in the original post (actually Reply "0"; Reply 1 is the second post))
"www.StoicJoker.com/TClock for general info. Download is still only available here."

I must be dense.  In that post, there are so many "this is here and that is there" that I can never figure out where to get it.  The above indicates I failed again. :)

I understand what you are saying; I have never had any problem with REVO damaging anything when set to 'moderate' level of detection.  It may leave stuff unremoved of course, and certainly did this time since Norton subverted the process by injecting the re-start, which ended Revo's operations.

I did just now download and run the Norton remover. It ran, but gives no report of details on what it did (it does say 'doing xyz' while running, but not results) --maybe removed nothing since I had already done the standard removal, and that could have confused it--but it did not report being confused.

We have no way of knowing what programs have their own removers except by doing a web search every time we get ready to uninstall something. Lots of added work.  One has to wonder why Norton did not make that remover tool be its uninstaller that runs when commanded through Programs and Features.  It could pop up a selection list to pick which thing to uninstall, or they could break it into pieces for each separate product.  The truth is, they WANT to leave stuff behind to do things like beg you to reinstall, or collect data (maybe) or whatever.  They don't want a clean, total uninstall to be done.

Yes, I did uninstall Norton...tried to use Revo uninstaller to get a good clean removal, but the Norton uninstall, which REVO runs first before doing its stuff, runs you into a restart--which closes Revo so it does not get to do its registry clean and file removal steps (pretty sneaky so they can leave their stuff behind I think).

I did configure Comodo using Chiron's settings (in Windows Secrets for one place).

T-clock seems OK this way--at least it does what I want, which is really only two things:
--let me set big, black font for date and time
--show me a calendar on click

I'm good for now.

I really don't know why I don't just chuck this computer out the window;  
I am so tired of "fixing things" instead of using it.

Reinstalled Windows 8.1 a week ago due to having to reboot 8-10 times a day using hard kill.
Have been reinstalling the various apps I use and setting options in them since then.
Had T-Clock working fine.

Today, got tired of the Norton nag to "register" (buy) it, so I installed Comodo Dragon and uninstalled Norton.
Now, error message "Failed to customize clock:3" appears any time it is tried to start.

Downloaded from the 1st post to be sure I had the latest...same error.

Makes me want to chew nails--especially since I have had Tclock working with Comodo Dragon in the past.

LATER:
Fixed.
Occurred to me to try compatibility.  Setting the exe to Win7 compatibility let it start and no error message.
Wish I could remember all these tricks associated with various program/OS quirks.

just out of curiosity, which program is it :P?
The calendar panel (they call it navigator) in Outlook which I have positioned on the right side, so when open it is right above Tclock

Thanks.
Now I have to confess that I was thinking of a different program that shows the vertical calendar.  In tclock, I was only getting ONE month showing before, and I know how to set it for that
Duh..

Don't get old.  It's no fun.

Surprise for me...
I recently had to reload Windows 8.1, and the T-clock left click gives me the calendar, which is what I want. 

However, it used to be a vertical stack of three months, but now is a horizontal row of 3 months--and looks far more "Windows-ish" than it used to. 

I much prefer the former way, but cannot find any settings in Properties to switch back to the vertical stack.

Is there a way?  Running 2.3.2 build 151

Do you think it would be enough to increase the font size and maybe also color it red,green or blue and open the about screen / options automatically on first launch? Thing is.. I don't want to overload the misc tab :P otherwise it gets lost again... It's nice to have it inside the about screen if you know it :P

Yes, although just larger, bold, black would be OK.

This isn't a huge issue.  I am a nitpicker (read: engineer). :)

the about page is the first page to popup if you open options :P
That doesn't mean we READ it.
(I've seldom found useful info there on most programs except when I needed to get a version number.)

« on: September 21, 2014, 02:07 PM »
did you know about the "Run at startup" option you'll find at the about screen?
Obviously not.  Now I do.  :)

Never have seen such on an "About" page.  
May I suggest being on the Miscellaneous tab?  
Not a biggie though.

Another stumble I encountered at first is that, for T-clock to run on every boot, I had to manually create a shortcut in the correct startup folder to the clock.exe in the right folder (32 or 64 bit).

Is that normal?

Question: the three selectable black colors that have writing in them...what are the differences between them?
Oops.. didn't see that question... those are system colors... means they aren't fix but dynamic depending on your Windows style. (on 8 you might only notice that when changing to a high contrast theme or using a custom made theme)

Still a bit confused; don't see how a 'black' can be a dynamic color--or do you mean sometimes it is NOT black as the system decides it "shouldn't be?"

Power, at one point you advocate for fewer clicks, then you say to put some things in a submenu--which would add clicks!

Wait... The MORE button in that window lets you run it anyway.  I did and it seems to install  AND I HAVE BLACK TEXT....YAHOO!

LATER--worked with it a few minutes and I LOVE it.  Now can see it in Windows 8.1.

Installed in Windows 8.1, and got a block from the OS.. See image

...What color does your windows clock use btw? Is it still white or also black?

Black and tiny size.  But that is due to theme I installed (uxstyle and employing Aero 8.1 Rounded Default from deviantart)...to eliminate the WHITE font hard coded by Redmond in Windows 8.1. with no inside OS way to change it. Not sure the size is style controlled--if it is, I sure wish I knew how to edit it.

That's the two problems even using the style: Although I got the black color, all taskbar font is balck but tiny, and I cannot see the date part unless I use the double height taskbar; no to that.

Ah, thanks very much for that explanation.
Can I bribe you to put it way high on your todo list (I really miss having the date there)?  :)

From a personal standpoint, I will be happy so long as I can have black and get it to be large (eyesight issues).

Oh, an aside...I found that you can do some adjusting within Windows 8.1 in the Region>Additional Settings>[Time | Date]. Wonder who put time adjustments in the 'Region' dialog?

But time and date are completely separate--you cannot make the display into one string.  I tried to do "d-MM, h:mm tt" in the time spec (since with the narrow bar, all I see is the time showing), but it would not accept date specs in the Time tab.  So all I can get is the time to show, due to having the narrowest taskbar, which causes date to not show.  It is in unreadably small size anyway, so even if date were there naturally, I could not read it easily.

I also wonder if they copied Tclock.  I wonder because of the "tt' to include AM pr PM.  "tt" does not seem to be an intuitive variable spec.

Lastly, where do I watch to see when the modified version is posted?
