T-Clock
« on: January 19, 2021, 03:47 PM »
Why in the world can I not install a small program that I used to have on the desktop called  T-Clock?  I've tried dozens of times.   It is a digital clock/date that sits in the taskbar, and replaces the MS clock, it was always Win  10 compatible, although it was written in earlier forms years before.  I am running (an up-to-date) Win 10   -  64 bit on a desktop, browser is Edge.
 
When I download any version of T-Clock,  it does have an exe. component, but not an install line that I recognize.   
 
I'd love to get it back.   There are a number of variants on the original program, it has been kicking around for probably 20 years. I'd gladly take any of them.    Thanks,    /hank

T-Clock Redux works superbly. I have it on multiple Windows 10 machines without a problem:

There isn't an installer, but here are the notes I have on it for how I always set it up - current version ought to be similar:

How to set up T-Clock 2010 build 95

1. Copy the entire T-Clock folder (contains Waves, Win32, x64 folders) into Program Files
2. Run clock.exe from the subfolder of the proper bitness
3. Right click and choose T-Clock Properties
4. On the About tab select Start T-Clock when Windows starts
5. On the Clock Text tab, choose Marlett, size 8 neither bold nor italic
6. On the Time Format tab, check Custom Format and set it to hh:nn:ss  POSIX\ndddd mmmm d, yyyy
7. On the Mouse tab, set the Action to Show Calendar and set the tool tip to dddd mmmm d, yyyy

Steps 5-7 are (personal preference) optional, but ^they're^ right.  :D

My rutine is a little different:

Unzip to C:\T-Clock

Right-click Clock64.exe and create a shortcut. Cut the cut and move it to C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Ultimately the folder can go anywhere, it's just traditional to put it in Program Files.

But regardless of where you put it, checking the start with Windows option on the About Tab simply creates a shortcut to the .exe's current location in C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
