Where is this help forum Paul was talking about? If I have any problems with SIB I'd like to ask it here and get the answers here.


Wonder if there is anything interesting in 1.6!

Well, it also happens to me once in a while. Posting a problem and waiting. Then the problem is gone before anyone comes to give an answer! Find it silly sometimes!

StartIsBack+ 1.6 BETA 0

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

Updates overhaul:

* StartIsBack by default now automatically downloads updates in background, using BITS service
* Update toast is displayed for a longer time
* 'New version is available' link leads to download / changes page
* 'New version is available' link does not vanish
Other changes:
- Flyout menus are responsive at all times regardless of Windows disk icon cache
- Icons for Modern UI apps are displayed when dragging them out of Start Apps folder
- When Windows updates are present, Shutdown button shuts down with installing updates
* (previosly you had to select 'Update and shut down'
- Preliminary support for pinning Start Apps items to taskbar (Windows 8.1 Spring Update)
- Fix: 'Problem with shortcuts' dialogs could be thrown on startup

Slovenian strings for updates are kinda weird in 1.6 beta 0 - they roughly translate to "Never check for updates (not recommended)", "Notice of installation of new updates" and "You being noticed about downloading and installing new updates". I'm not sure where you're pulling these from, but other than the first one, they aren't meant to be used in this context.

They're exactly from Windows Update setting strings. Huh.

I'm getting "Failed to set data for ''" when trying to install StartIsBackPlus on a new Windows install. The same thing happens both with latest stable, and with 1.6 beta 0. The directory in Program Files (x86) is created, and files are copied to it, but that's all that happens.

there seems to be some sort of conflict after installing updates last night

http://cl.ly/Tv9a/Image%202014-02-14%20at%202.19.39%20PM.png

shell no longer loads properly at startup i get a cursor and a black screen and need to manually start explorer.exe

doing a system restore and reverting the updates solves the problem

TBH I had this issue before after installing updates but I figured it was just a one time glitch apparently it isn't

edit: installed the beta no change
