Start Menu stuck?
Stolichnaya posted a topic in Windows 7Ok, so this is my gripe with Windows 7, Build 7100, 32-bit OS. I have an Acer Aspire 4520, with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor TK-53, 1.70GHz. I have 4 GB RAM, of which only 3 GB seems usable. Everything seems terrific, works fine. BUT... I have this problem with the Start menu Left Hand Side White Band. When I first clean-installed Windows 7, it had Getting Started, Windows Media Center, Calculator, Sticky Notes, Snipping Tool, Paint, Remote Desktop Connection, Magnifier and Notepad. Of these, I could further expand the Getting Started and Sticky Notes. But now that I have finished installation of all my programs (Office, Acrobat etc.), I notice that not only am I not able to expand the expandable programs anymore, but also I cannot do a right click on those and 'Remove from this list'. They seem to be stuck there. They're not allowing any other programs to progress to their place, no matter how many times I open the other programs! Anyone else having this problem? (Subsequently, I managed to solve this mystery. Right click on Taskbar -> Properties -> Start Menu tab -> Privacy, clear the box that says, "Store and display recently opened programs in the Start menu". This clears the entire list. But it still doesn't solve why the right click on specific program and 'Remove from this list' doesn't work.) While I am here, another question - I notice I have IE8, Libraries and WMP on the Taskbar for fast access. This is in place of the Quick Launch icons that used to be there. How can I add more icons of other programs to this Taskbar?
slipstreaming issues with ie7, mp11, and sp3(final)
Stolichnaya replied to Lqdwax's topic in nLitePardon me for asking a very basic question, but you mean you had to run nLite seperately a sum total of 4 times as follows: 1. SP3 2. WMP11 3. IE7 4. KB941569 and KB947864 Is that correct? I've been breaking my head trying to do what you did, and just want to make it clear that I don't run into the same hassles again. Thanks in advance!
HELPPP! Yet another IE7 versus SP3 integration!
Stolichnaya replied to djzn's topic in nLiteGuys, I have the new nLite - 1.4.5 Final. I tried slipstreaming final SP3 (which I downloaded yesterday) first, then adding the IE7 (which again I downloaded yesterday in case they had updated something), and a hotfix for that (IE7-WindowsXP-KB947864-x86-ENU - I found through the Updates Page that I needed only this after the IE7 installation), and following up with WMP11 and a hotfix for that (WindowsXP-KB941569-x86-ENU - Again, I found through the Updates Page that I needed only this after the WMP11 installation). Guess what? My installation fails. But if I do the SP3 by itself without the IE7 & WMP11, things are fine. Am I missing out on some trick here? Cheers! Stolichnaya
Timezone issues in nLite 1.4.1
Stolichnaya posted a topic in nLiteI'm not sure if anyone else is facing this minor irritant - I used nLite 1.4.1 to integrate all the hotfixes till date (February 2008), IE7 and WMP 11. So far so good. Under the unattended installation, I set my timezone, India (+5.30 GMT). However, upon installing from this disk, I observe that my timezone has now shifted to Kabul (+4.30 GMT). I lose this hour somehow. Not a major issue, really. All I have to do is manually reset the timezone. But what is bugging me is that why is this one hour shift happening? Have I been doing something wrong? Not once, but repeatedly this happens. I've tried making the installation disc several time because of this. Mind you, this started with nLite 1.4 onwards - earlier, I didn't have this problem. Can anyone throw any light on this? Thanks in advance!
