  1. Are you on a Local account? From what I have read you wont get the update offer unless your logged in with a MS account. ~DP
  2. You may be offered the update but it won't install unless you work for Microsoft. https://twitter.com/GabeAul/status/588470689755082753 ~DP
  3. Any idea when that will happen? Showing up now on Windows Updates, also here is a registry fix to get the new builds as well. ~DP http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/fixing-error-0x80246017-windows-10-build-9926
  4. Maybe when build 10061 comes out some of these issues will hopefully be resolved. ~DP
  5. Noel, on your current build 10049 that you are using with ClassicShell and your Custom Theme are you finding any issues when attempting to open up the Windows Apps?
  6. Just wonder where in the registry is the option to enable the 'Show color on taskbar and Start menu'? ~DP This explains more detail of color settings and registry of Windows 10 http://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3380-color-appearance-change-windows-10-a.html
  7. I was using the latest classic shell but it disables my Apps and renders then useless on build 10056 plus has no options for keeping the Windows 10 start screen like Start10. ~DP
  8. And for those that want to keep the 'Windows 10 style' start menu with Windows 7 rounded corners (which ClassicShell does not offer) there is always the latest beta build of Start10 for Windows10 to try out as well.. P.S. and yes it does $$cost about the price of a cheap whopper jr. big deal. ~DP
  9. Well I understand that not everyone loves Classic but the Theme is based on 'Windows 7' so in staying with that and being a purists then it would just make sense that the start menu would also be Windows 7 as well along with the frames corners and buttons and even the desktop icons. But then again some like a mix of hodgepodge visual styles rather that staying as close to the orginal look. ~DP
  10. That looks great! What are you using to get the rounded effect. To get that effect I use BigMuscles Uxthemesignaturebypass and for Windows 7 theme I use http://damonkeyoncrack.deviantart.com/art/Aero7-V2-for-Windows-8-8-1-10-TP-build-9879-429412929 and OldNewExplorer http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/170375-oldnewexplorer-make-your-81-explorer-work-like-win78-one/ and you Also use Classic shell to show your start button as well
  11. Seems like we get this Question a lot on here, anyway problem must be solved now since we have not heard back from the OP. ~DP
  12. if you pm me I can send you a rounded theme I have been working on that may work for you. ~DP
  13. That looks great! What are you using to get the rounded effect. Looks like one of the custom Windows 7 rounded themes for Windows 10. ~DP Yea it does. I just don't want a theme where I need to install stuff to install it! LOL Unless it works really well. Well other than 'Uxthemesignaturebypass' you really don't need to install anything, just make sure that your atlas png is disabled and not running. ~DP
  14. Have you noticed how they're calling these various "new build" tracks by names such as "awesome" and "impressive"? Gotta wonder if they really believe they're coming up with awesome and impressive achievements, or if it's a case of trying to convince themselves by the power of labeling. --JorgeA The use of 'Awesome and Impressive' is just more of Microsoft's subliminal message crap to us, thinking that eventually we will all come around and think how 'Wonderful and Excellent' this latest Windows 10 O.S. build has become and how did we ever survive without it til now. ~DP
  15. That looks great! What are you using to get the rounded effect. Looks like one of the custom Windows 7 rounded themes for Windows 10. ~DP
  16. Here’s what’s new: Improved support for Windows 10The start menu searches modern PC settings for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10Added new Midnight skin with dark backgroundAdded new flat Metro skin that uses the start screen colorsNew ability to apply settings from XML files from command line: use ClassicStartMenu.exe -xml <settings file>New setting to override the system DPI resolution only for the start menuNew setting to change the user pictureImproved support for touch and high resolution displaysAdded support for Scottish, Catalan, Macedonian and Persian languagesMultiple minor improvements and bugfixes The new version can be downloaded from the home page http://www.classicshell.net
  17. We should probably call this thread 'Windows 10 - Last Impressions' as in it will the 'Last' OS that I will use, Thanks but No Thanks Microsoft I will stick with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. ~DP
  18. could be a Admin issue as well, so either add a admin script to the vbs or your batch and try it that way. ~DP
  19. I noticed that the bat file above says "For Windows 10" does it also work on 8.1? It's Windows 10 because of 'ModernFrame.dll' just remove that section from the reg adds and it will work for 8.1 as well and with a 64-bit OS. ~DP P.S. And yes the 'UxthemeSignatureBypass' method is a stroke of Genuis by BigMuscle, no need to use theme patchers any more like UltraUX or UxStyle.
  20. Thanks Hockninc for the updated theme atlas files, looks really good. ~DP
  21. For 'unknown' and hard to find drivers I use a app called 'DriverIdentifier' http://www.driveridentifier.com/ You can also check out http://driverpacks.net/driverpacksfor your XP drivers as well. Good Luck. ~DP
  22. This issue with IE has been discussed on here before and seems to be a common problem, just switch over to another browser such as Chrome. ~DP
  23. If what you want are the hotfixes with KB's you can also use system info or wmic as well in script for a dated log file and just run as admin. ~DP @Echo Off:: KBUpdates.cmd:: ### PRINT ALL INSTALLED KB UPDATES TO DATED LOG FILE..:: Via WmicSet Wusa=%systemdrive%\HotFixes-%date:~10,4%-%date:~4,2%-%date:~7,2%-%date:~0,3%.htmWmic qfe list full /format:htable>%wusa%:: Via SysteminfoFor /F "tokens=2-4 delims=/ " %%a in ('date /t') do (set mydate=%date:~10,4%-%date:~4,2%-%date:~7,2%-%date:~0,3%)Set Wusa_Dt=%mydate%Systeminfo|Find ": KB">nul>> %systemdrive%\UPDATE.LOG.%wusa_Dt%.logPause
  24. You can also print out a .log file of all your .NET installs (Name and Version) from batch, just Run as administrator. ~DP @Echo Off::NetInstalls.cmd (Run As Admin)WMIC /NameSpace:\\Root\Cimv2 Path Win32_Product Where "Name Like '%%.NET%%'" Get Name, Version|Findstr /VI Version > C:\NetInstalls.logPause
