Start Is Back - 2.1 release

Recommended Posts


StartIsBack 2.0RC3

http://www.startisback.com/StartIsBack_setupRC.exe

This is the last RC. If no important bugs arise, that will be Release version. Just a few translations missing.

What's new:

- StartIsBack is now configurable by group policy. It was already 100% compatible with Windows 7 policy but now all StartIsBack options are fully configurable / restrictable with group policy.

Download group policy template: http://www.startisback.com/GroupPolicy.zip

- It also has a setting to enable StartIsBack in Safe Mode (SOFTWARE\StartIsBack\"EnableInSafeMode"=1)

- You can activate StartIsBack license online automatically from command line: StartIsBackCfg.exe /activate [/elevated] YOUR-LICENSE-KEY-NUMBER

I should write a Deployment Guide soon.

That aside, release contains few minor fixes and improvements. Just a few small steps left to 2.0 release.

This is going way beyond what I was expected when I bought the app. Go go go Tihiy :thumbup

Is it possible to create a "Metro Apps" folder in "All Programs" with app shortcuts for faster access so we don't have to add them manually after every re-install? (see my photo link below).

Excuse me, but such folder ('Start Apps') is already created by default in 2.0. :o

Just a slight addition to your "Install Group Policy.txt" for those with newer servers. Those policy files go in:

\\<yourdomainname>\SYSVOL\<yourdomainname>\Policies\PolicyDefinitions

So far no problems with the GPs. I'll keep turning them on and off so make sure each does it's job.

I am using 2.0RC3 and There is no Start Apps folder Listed with any Metro Apps!

Look at my photo on my post above then look at this photo ..

Tell me the following:

- What install type are you using (per user or per pc)

- What setting 'Start Apps' is (configuration - Start Menu - Start Apps)

- Does searching for Weather (for example) find modern app

- You can also check if StartIsBack32.dll/StartIsBack64.dll have version 2.0.0.3.

Ok, I re-installed using the "Install for everyone" and now the Start Apps shows up..:thumbup

btw, What is the silent install flags or switches on version 2.0RC3 to install for everyone? The old /silent switch no longer works

if I use /S it prompts for the install for me or everyone and stops there..
