  1. Restart explorer.exe and see if they pop up. Or reboot, or log off then on again...which ever. From what I can tell, it has the same bug from ex7forW8. They don't show up for me until explorer is restarted.
  2. The error message is saying exactly what the problem is. You are missing "Start_AdminToolsTemp". To fix it, scroll down to "Systems administrative tools" and change the option to anything. Then apply. The error should be gone now. OR Add it yourself: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced] "Start_AdminToolsTemp"=dword:00000001 EDIT: @Tihiy - On Windows 7 (maybe earlier), if you choose to not display this setting then it does not set the value to "0". Instead it deletes the key so it's possible to have Windows REMOVE that registry entry. So technically there's a scenario where that entry is not found. You might want to ignore this error in the future. There might be other automated scripts (like mine that I posted earlier) that replicate the no key scenario. EDIT2: I've been messing with it all morning and I'm not seeing any other errors on either 2012 or Win8. Aside from the missing key issue above but I've already altered my scripts so no more issues there.
  3. My Server 2012 experience is identical to Win8. So far no additional issues. Yes, Win+x still works.
  4. Did you make sure to put the files in C:\StartIsBack? Sounds to me like the reg file you imported isn't properly pointing to the files.
  5. I created my own installer so I could plug the registry settings into ALL USERS. Here's the problem I'll be running into with Ex7forW8. I've already installed it on over 30 machines. Maybe half of them have it installed for the local admin user and the current domain user. So when I go through and remove it, I have to make sure to unset ALL users per machine otherwise months later when I go to login as the local admin, it'll fail because it can't find the Win7 explorer to load. By setting the values for all users I can make sure they're unset for all users when/if for whatever reason I need to remove it or change it (like I will be with this new version later on). Maybe the future installer can have a current user/all users option? ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ User tile works! ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Admin Tools works for me, however, my entire start menu is altered via a reg file. Here's what little code brought it up: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced] "Start_AdminToolsRoot"=dword:00000002 "StartMenuAdminTools"=dword:00000001 Also here's another bit that mentions admin but wasn't need to get it up, might be needed for something else: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced] "Start_AdminToolsTemp"=- More to come....
