  1. When I run this in Win 7 32-bit, I get the error: "Windows cannot find 'C:\Windows\SysNative\RunDLL32.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again." Any suggestions?
  2. Thanks Bober That is very helpful. I learned about alpha transparency only because some png's I created didn't have transparency in older IE6 browsers, which are common still in many schools and businesses. Since it was going to be accessed at a school among other places I had to do it, and I learned I could use Adobe Fireworks to create an 8-bit png with alpha transparency, which works well, though it is not quite as good as full blown png. Maybe Windows works under the same limitations as IE6 does? I don't know..
  3. Thanks Bober for your explanation. I'm gonna use the sysdm file out of the version then. Where can I find information how to make a bmp with transparent alpha channel? Or how do you do this? I tried Fireworks but could not find setting for alpha transparency for bmp (although I have used alpha channel on png's to make them show as transparent in older versions of IE).
  4. So just to be clear, so what you're saying is that the icon issue is fixed but that you haven't posted the version yet that has this update? Another question: I usually mod the System Information icon myself (below on the same tab), but I was not able to achieve transparency with the icon, so I usually just copy the predominant color of the visual style I normally use.. but I thought the key was to make it a bitmap and apply the pink color to get transparency, but when I tried that it wouldn't work and it showed a pink box around it. Thank you, troubada
  5. I'm not sure if this is the right place for this, but I noticed on 2 separate installs (XP Pro) that the top image under "My Computer/Properties/General" tab has a light colored square around it when applying different visual styles. See pic:
