  1. There seems to be an issue for first time installers where it doesn’t load the data. You have to turn off the Side Bar, and turn it on again to get the info.

    I think I’ve fixed this in version 1.01, which is downloadable now.

  2. Just downloaded it, del.icio.us-ed it and will install later. It’s annoying that you have to have administrator right to install the msi. It would be great to have an exe to install through run-as.

  4. Re: #10 No deal. But I did not get the plugin to work with Google Desktop 3 engl. under W2K. It simply does not show up – nowhere. Send me a PM on performancing.com if you need more info or a step-by-step description.
