      Did you use the default Administrator account or did you create your own after you installed Windows?

      If you created one instead of using the default Administrator account set permissions so you have full Administrator rights through control userpasswords2 in Run command.

      Have you also tried right click the batch file and select the “Run as Administrator” command?

      Yes I used run as administrator und tried the Administrator (Original) account as well as my account (Group Administrators) which I used since Installing Win 2008. I did now control userpasswords2 but no effect 😳

      Wow that’s really strange, I installed the Sidebar without any trouble when I installed R2 on my Laptop a while ago, and I always use the default Administrator Account without making any changes to it.

      I’m sorry Chris I can’t actually come up with any solution to this.

      I guess you could try adding everything manually from the package in the respective folders and run the reg files if that’s possible.

      Are you sure your download completed successfully? If not, try to re-download the file from one of the mirrors listed at the Sidebar page and verify the size and/or checksum of the downloaded file.Extract all files from the archive to some folder and then run the installer.

      If that still doesn’t work, copy the x64Windows Sidebar folder to C:Program Files. After copying run the following commands as Administrator in a Command Prompt window (Start -> Run -> cmd):

      • “%ProgramFiles%Windows Sidebarsidebar.exe” /RegServer
      • regsvr32 “%ProgramFiles%Windows Sidebarsbdrop.dll”
      • regsvr32 “%ProgramFiles%Windows Sidebarwlsrvc.dll”

      You should now be able to use the Sidebar.

      Good luck! 🙂

      I can confirm that method, I used to do that on R1 when I wanted the Sidebar.
      Following Arris method should equal a 100% chance of it to work.

      Hi, I set up my computer with WIN 2008 Standard as a workstation. Everything of the enhancements of win2008workstation.com worked like a charm. So again thanks a lot.

      Yesterday I did an upgrade to WIN 2008 R2. Everything works (Aero, Sound etc.) after updating drivers. But I’m not able to run as an administrator any of the new scripts like sidebar or themes.

      Windows 7 Sidebar installer for Windows Server 2008 R2
      By AsciiWolf – http://asciiwolf.com/
      ========================================================

      [+] Press any key to start the installation…
      [+] Copying x64 Sidebar to “C:Program FilesWindows Sidebar”…
      Datei Windows Sidebar nicht gefunden
      [-] Installation failed! Are you running the installation as Administrator?
      [+] Press any key to exit the installer…

      Any hints?

      Regards Chris
