  1. I've found a weird XP Mode bug. I can install it (and even install apps) just fine, but it only runs after the intial setup. Under the Windows Virtual PC folder under the Start Menu, it just says (empty), unless I have apps installed. Virtual PC is missing, as well as the XP Mode shortcuts that should be listed there. I cant even open the VM directly from the VHD files. Any body else seen this, or have a suggestion? SOLVED - I upgraded from Vista with Virtual PC 2007 installed. I uninstalled it with a third party uninstaller (VPC 2007 dosent work on 7). It wiped out my start menu shortc
  2. W7T alpha crashes every time I try to d/l office 2007 updates.....
  3. I think I found the answer here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itprosecurity/thread/ccf3b6ef-1321-46bc-95ae-03e534b5ae5c It appears that a group policy setting is created during a vista to 7 upgrade. It constantly turns UAC back on. Weird. This is the specific file: C:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\Registry.pol I renamed it to .bak, and I will report back when I'm sure that's the fix. EDIT: That seems to have done the trick.
  4. I cant manage to keep UAC off. No matter how many times I turn UAC off and reboot, in a few hours it turns itself back on to Always Notify. Anybody else having this problem? Any suggestions?
  5. just installed this on my MCE box via the inf installers. upon reboot, i lost ALL keyboard and mouse support, both PS2 and USB. I'm having to reinstall now, because with no input, I cant even do a system restore. I understand that this was a nLite addon, and installing via .inf probably isnt recomended, but I thought I'd share my results......
  6. wow, just wow if any wants a dx10 addon, PM me, and i'll gladly make it for you.....
  7. no offense, but you seem to be very oppininated over something you havent tried... and thats not the original source for the project, links can be found anywhere... i totally agree that dx10 is not superior to dx9 in anyway. but i would hardly call dx an important windows component. and funny how on that same page, they link to the alky project libraries/runtimes. actually, my friends and i, have tested dx10 against dx9 on my website (holy sh**, with comparison screenshots). the visible differences are slight at best, but the main noticable effect of dx10 is an fps boost of ~10 fps. thi
  8. yeah that is strange. the only thing i could think of, was that your uid's were over 16 charcters, which probably has nothing to do it with it...... fix that w2k prob?
  9. "written by a guy who poisons bittorrent networks with ratio cheating clients " just wondering where you got this info... and how is this much different from wanting the sidebar on XP?
  10. an easier way: delete the original bliss.jpg rename your default wallpaper to bliss.jpg
  11. just reinstalled naughty bits edited out, wrong album art showing...

  13. here is the SP2 file edited to work on SP3 5512. THIS IS NOT THE REAL 5512 TASKMGR! but it will work on 5512 just fine... if i get time i'll try hexing the 5512 file.... http://www.mediafire.com/?o08fmxee3zj size: 56.1 KB MD5: 624EB594278C3D9512A828CD636B8C5D
  14. With some help from DARECKIBMW, i figured it out. The sidebar image dosent seem to exist as a bitmap in any normal resource file. It seems it can be added through shellstyle.dll used in a theme. And I believe the UIFILE has to be edited to call it, but i'm not 100% sure on that. So DARECKIBMW sent me this file (I think its from one of VG's themes): http://www.mediafire.com/?mtdntpxyixb and i replaced 120.bmp with my own. That shellstyle.dll needs to go in WINDOWS>Resources>Themes>*theme name*>Shell>Normal Color>. I tried it with a theme that didnt have a Shell folder (I
  15. hey, i know this can be done, but i cannot find the correct resource to do it. i would like to replace the blue left side panel in xp explorer with an image. i've been all over shell32.dll, shell.dll, shellstyle.dll and a few others, but i cant find it anywhere. anybody know where i can find it?
  16. i've never taken the time to actually hex it. i have one that works with 5512, but its really the taskman from SP2.....
  17. i'm guessing the original kernel was corrupted during raring or d/ling....
