Windows 8 RTM Startscreen SDK by PeterRollar Windows 8 RTM Startscreen SDK by PeterRollar
Windows 8 startscreen for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8:)


How to use:
First of all download Avedesk 1.3 hereavedesk.aqua-soft.org/download…
Install it and run the proggy one times to get rid of the intro.
Than copy and paste the Avedesk exe to the main folder of this deviation.
Click on the exe and it should run.:)
If not the controlpanel of Avedesk will appear and you have to load the theme manually.


Why do i call it SDK (Self Development Kit)?
Because you can use it as it is, or modify it to your likings. Build your own personal startscreen if you want.
Versions already included Developer preview
Consumer preview
Release preview
RTM
Warning: Big file size 80 mb
Basic knowledge of customisation needed.


:devart: download is only a dummy download for the people who don't read descriptions.Cannot upload the original file because of DA's fantastic upload policy.:(

Watch the preview on Youtube here www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TctYA…

Winmetro is great. The only prob is, that it can't be customised.

So basically Avedesk works for you? Do you have a 32 or 64 bit machine?

Go to appdata Avedesk. To see this folder you have to select "Show hidden folders" in your folder options. Delete all theme files there. Copy and paste the theme file you wanna use in this folder and restart Avedesk.
