If you encounter this ‘Xtools Xtoolkit installation error’, there are a couple of steps you can take to fix it. The first step is to uninstall the current Xtoolkit installation and install it again. You should do this several times before you get the desired results. You may have to repeat the entire installation process more than once before the X toolkit starts working properly.
Xtools has some minor drawbacks, however. Photoshop’s checkbox only selects some tools. This state is recorded in the action manager code. However, you can always load a preset to select a tool. Unlike actions, a script cannot set the checkbox state, and it cannot know when a checkbox is checked or unchecked. It also does not support previous versions of Photoshop.
X Toolkit is a ‘Policy-free’ Framework
X Toolkit is a ‘police-free’ framework, consisting of Xt Intrinsics and a widget set. A widget set is a combination of a graphical X window and input/output semantics. A widget set may implement a private protocol or not. When mixing widget sets, functionality may be lost or unavailable.
The toolkit provides extensive logging, a C Language interface, and mass removal of MSI applications. It also supports installing applications on Citrix XenApp/Remote Desktop Session Host Servers. Users can configure the toolkit’s default behavior for each environment or customize its default behaviour. In addition, X Toolkit provides a ‘policy-free’ framework that is compatible with many other languages.
It assumes Top-level Windows
When trying to install X Toolkit, you’re probably getting an error that says “XToolkit assumes top-level windows.” That means that your application has multiple top-level windows and requires that the application has a specific structure in order to be installed. The problem is that X Toolkit doesn’t consider pop-up windows as part of the tree structure.
This is a common error and can occur for several reasons. Generally, it’s caused by a corrupt registry, which is a database of information about all files on your computer. Fortunately, there are registry cleaner programs that will repair any errors in the registry. You can also install stand-alone scripts to fix this issue manually. Here’s how to fix this error.
It Doesn’t Treat Pop-Up Windows As Part Of The Tree Structure
When installing Xtools XToolKit, the default method for detecting and displaying pop-up windows is to click the “Pin” option. A pinned pop-up window is fixed in position, not moving. Its contents will remain on the screen until the user closes it. Installing XToolKit fixes this problem.
It requires PS7 to install
PS7 users can use Xtools to fix the problem of installing the faulty Xtoolkit. To install XTools, you should have the latest version of PS7 and CS. If you do not have either, you can download Xtools for PS7 from the official website. After downloading, you should follow the installation process as indicated by the operating system.
The XToolkit action set is a great addition to Photoshop. It comes with convenient wrappers that allow you to use library scripts without downloading them. XToolkit also has a Demo Scripts and Toolkit Scripts folder. The latter are for experienced Photoshop users, while the former are meant for novices. However, PS7 users may find this set of scripts useful.
