Open the controlpanel of Avedesk. Click on file. In the dropdown menu click on load theme.

For any reason Avedesk is still running after crashing. Sounds weird i know. You must end it via taskmanager before giving it a second try.

Klappt für mich leider immer noch nicht, schreibe auf deutsch, da ich gerade mit dem Handy schreibe, ist aber auch nicht so schlimm, habe es aber an einem anderen Windows 7 PC getestet und hat geklappt, ich muss sagen, dass Sie gute Arbeit geleistet haben. :D

Danke. Ärgerlich ist es trotzdem, dass es scheinbar nicht auf jedem Pc funktioniert. Gleiche Vorraussetzungen und verschiedene Ergebnisse, das bietet nur Windows.:D Schade, dass ich nicht helfen kann.

On my old AMD Athlon 1.1 GHZ 1 GB RAM it needed about 1 minute to load.

This is a SDK (Self Development Kit). So everyone can make the changes which are needed in a few steps. Not really much work. I've upgraded mine in about one hour.

Yeah, I had a few problems during my install too. The video of the installation process can be found here: [link]

This was not my first time attempting to install this.

I have a Windows 7 SP1 x64 PC.

I watched your video three times meanwhile, and it is obvious that you made everything the correct way. I don't really know why it is not working for you. Basically Avedesk seems to work on your machine. I have never tried it on a 64 bit computer.Only on five 32 bit machines and it worked on all of them. Maybe that's the reason.
If you find the time and motivation, can you please check two things:
Do you see a list of the desklets in the controlpanel of Avedesk? If yes please select one of them, click on properties than Style and change the style from icon to normal window and check if it appears.
I'm really sorry for all the inconvienance you have.

In case the link's dead (which it may be), here's the REAL link to the video (in 1080p resolution, but it's a somewhat buggy file because I used a crappy screen recorder.): [link]

Yepp it took me 3 or 4 hours to make this.But it is always better than answering a lot of questions. This no fast food customisation, and needs some explanation for not experienced users.

Basically this is a theme for Avedesk[link]
Avedesk is a program similar to Rainmeter or Samurize.

Skrell Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012
Does Avedesk have advantages over rainmeter? Is that why you chose it ?
Reply
:iconpeterrollar:
PeterRollar Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't know if it has advantages over Rainmeter, but i don't think so. I'm not familiar with Rainmeter, so i can't say to much. I've already used Avedesk for another deviation, and so i used it again because i was to lazy to learn something new (Rainmeter).

Ok that makes sense. I've never used Avedesk, but i was shocked that you were able to do things like scroll bars with it! (at the bottom of the startscreen to move across all the tiles). Also does the "search apps" function really work??
Reply
:iconpeterrollar:
PeterRollar Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
If you have the time watch the video on Youtube. There you can see how it works. The scrollbars don't scroll the screen. They are triggers to swich between the two screens. This means they fade out/in the tiles of the screens.
I'm not sure what you mean with "search apps " function. There is nothing like that in this deviation.Please give me one more hint.

It is made on a 11 year old AMD Athlon and the screenrecorder ate up nearly all resources. I think i will install it on a newer machine to get better videos.
