Vista-Compatible Alternative to Toaster

Hiho... been a while. Since the search didn't return anything useful - are there any plugins that display pretty much the same stuff as Toaster in a pop-up or toast, which are Winamp compatible? Maybe just a mod that adds album art to the Notifications system that's already built into Winamp Modern?

Thanks in advance ...

Weeeeeeeeeeee

CD Art Display is rather good.

Looks good, but in the 5 minutes I've tried to use it, it's already crashed 3 times - this thing is nowhere near a release candidate status yet ...

Are you saying Toaster does not run in Vista?
I dunno, since I'm still using XP and won't go to Vista yet, not for awhile, since I personally feel it was released prematurely and still has glitches (but that's just my opinion).

If Toaster isn't working in Vista, have you tried contacting Shane Hird (Toaster author)?

Current contacts for Shane Hird...
  1. PM him (he is forums member shaneh - last posted here exactly one month ago on 04-09-2007)
  2. Contact him using this form
  3. Contact him through his Winamp Music Plugins website

Addendum:

I don't know if Shane did any work on Toaster yet for Vista, but he mentioned it last year in this post.

Does it really matter when a Microsoft product is released? They always contains glitches (but that's just my opinion).

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.

True, JM!
But I also won't "upgrade" (if that's what changing from XP to Vista can be called) till more software is developed that is Vista compatible.

For instance, Vista "claims" that they sport a 2-way firewall (unlike XP's built-in firewall), but it still pales in comparison to the Comodo Firewall, which is what I use (and recommend). Unfortunately, Comodo hasn't developed a Vista-compatible version yet.

Also... remember the travesty that Gates released named Windows Millenium? That was a disaster then and still is now.

Take care, JM!
Hope to see you around!
Tom

I am still holding on to WinXP as long as I possibly can. Vista is not exactly on my top ten list.
