  1. ~ 8.1 Rants Or Raves ~

    Thanks. I am happy that you like my tool My video with this tool:
  2. Windows Logon Screen Background Color

    When green turned to blue, it means that new color (green in this case) is not supported by OS. In your case, OS reject ANY color you choose in tuner. I even have no idea how i can reproduce this behavior. Maybe you installed something I do not have? For example, that recently leaked GA Rollup update for 8.1 RTM?
  3. Windows Logon Screen Background Color

    Well, I have same missing dependecny here It is not a cause of the issue. I have only one idea. Maybe it is related to the fact that personalization settings are disabled till Windows is activated. Maybe this affects API too. When new value is written to registry, the app performs few api calls, probably they kill new value.
  4. Windows Logon Screen Background Color

    Nope. I have not tried it in Audit Mode. Yes, I want PML WinaeroStartScreenHelper.dll is native dll.
  5. Windows Logon Screen Background Color

    hmm, no idea. I use the same OS, it works here.
  6. Windows Logon Screen Background Color

    Hi, I am developer of the tool. Tripredacus, please tell me which OS your use? x86 or x64?
  7. Here is good news for everyone who loved and missed the Desktop Gadgets in Windows 8. Gadgets Revived, yet another alternative (and probably the best one) of Sidebar, is a very cool sidebar gadgets package with ALL original features like control panel items, Windows Search items and gadgets gallery! Very lovely thing, it even brings back "View running gadgets" item via control panel! Things which are "revived": Desktop context menu The show/hide gadgets command: Full Control Panel integration including working links inside the "Appearance and personalization" category and search! See: Start Menu Support (StartIsBack and ClassicShell at least) The gallery contains OVER 900 gadgets which are checked manually to be compatible/working in Windows 8/8.1 Checkit out http://gadgetsrevived.com/
  8. User List Enabler for Windows 8

    Guys, please update User List Enabler Version 2.0 is available. I recreated this app from scratch. With new engine, i have fixed the following bugs: User list enabler now compatible with Windows 8 and Windows 8 Pro. Fixed a bug with user account which is not administrator. Download User List Enabler v2
  9. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    After I have seen your app I decide to pause the development of Winaeroglass. BTW, I am the person behind Winaero ----------- Tried with clean FF Works properly.
  10. Hmm, this is my first try at MSFN, so do not kill me If you have multiple user accounts in Windows 8 (e.g. one for yourself and another for your family member), you may notice a new annoyance in Windows 8 – it signs in the last user automatically who shut down/rebooted the PC. This tool resolves the issue and brings back the users list for you with one click. You will be able to choose your user account at every startup. As the result of hard research, this tool is completely different from other existing methods, including all methods I have described in Winaero's blog. This is unique and safest tool, because: it does not changes access rights on any registry key it does not break "Run as different user..." Explorer command, it does not break anything. it uses only built-in Windows features and tools Under the hood of User List Enabler for Windows 8 is nothing more than just Group Policy's "Logoff script". It does all dirty job for you. See how it works: User List Enabler for Windows 8 is free, portable tool compatible with Windows 8 x86 and x64. It will request UAC/Administrator's right when they will be required. Use "Reset to defaults" button to rollback changes. Home page for interested persons.
  11. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    I will try with new clean profile for FF without any plugins and will post results here.
  12. Aero Glass for Win8 RC4

    Well, just tried this. Firefox is constantly flickering, I am unable to use it. Windows drawing is VERY slow (like software-based DCE in Longhorn 4066/4074). Sometimes it makes all other windows flickering for a moment. My OS is Win8 x64 Pro Retail. Debug log is attached. debug.7z
  13. Windows Logon Screen Background Color

    xplcient, thanks for "genius", but actually I am not. My Sign In Screen Color Changer is just several lines of code
