Same here. I didn't like it very much. I know how to enable it manually but would love a way to automatic and put it in the unattended setup.

Please keep us updated on your solution.

(its for XP sp 1 and sp 2 ) on win 7 i have no idea :-)...

For Windows XP Unattended, I use the same method as the link above. I find Windows 7 uses this two registry keys. First create a new user account. Logon to the new user account and create the quick launch toolbar on the taskbar. Use Regedit to export the two keys below.

The final step is to use the autounattend.xml to import the registry tweak to the default profile. But I don't know how.

Has anyone try it yet?

No but i'm working on it cause I don't care for their new method

It seems near-impossible to have Quick Launch with the divider, enabled upon installation, on Windows 7.

Its classed as a "Toolbar" just like in Vista and XP! But exporting "TaskbarWinXP" hex from the "Streams" key (like in XP) doesn't work in 7.

For Windows XP ToggleQL will do the job.

ToggleQL

toggleql.exe 1

---> Quick Launch On

toggleql.exe 0

---> Quick Launch Off

Regards

Urs

I wish they made this for Windows 7.

I posted my own long winded post asking really the same, how to enable it so you don't have to do anything manually.

I should be playing with this tonight as I want to be able to make unattendedly...

Maybe applying the tweak to "HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT" like we used to on XP (at the early stage from cmdlines.txt) could work, but in Windows 7 where is the equivelant of "cmdlines.txt" ???

I already tried to make it run from the unattended XML with a <FirstLogonCommand> to run it but nothing changed, it did nopt have Quick Launch.

Kel made a Quick Launch enabler CAB file addon for nLite but I have never seen one for Vista and now, the Taskbar in Windows 7 is different anyway, even to Vista.

On XP though, all you did was set the Taskbar up, reboot, then export a certain reg key, change the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\" to "HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\" and make cmdlines.txt import it. Then again I often just gave up on that and used the Kel addon, but that was XP, I don't think we are going to find one for Windows 7 yet and even then, vLite cannot put addons into Windows 7.

Nobody that have found/made a hack/modification to do it? So many skilled people in here and not yet a quick launch enabler for win7 ;)

#Update

I have found a autoit script but does not working 100%

"On some systems it may stop at level, so just click Toolbar>New Toolbar

it will continue .. well it did on mine,

TweaK: If you want you can disable the Text and Toolbar Name by right click."

Since i cant upload it to here 269KB and max size here is 200kb i have uploaded it to ifile.it

Download

If any could decode it and look into the file and fix the problems it has that would be awesome :)
