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.:(

I think i have to upgrade to 64 bit too. Only 2.7 GB of 4GB RAM are used on my Windows8.
Not only the VS suck, most of the coloura are horrible too.

Wait a minute... I should read a tutorial first. I'll report how it succeed.

Aww... I couldn't. I rode the tutorial, but I got several errors after trying to launch your theme. 2 of them: [link]. But that's not all. I also saw a red tile, and I was like WTF, when I heard Lily Allen singing. Eventually, I got "AVEDESK.EXE has stopped working...".

Okay. Let's see what we can do.
Your pictuire shows that one of the effectlets wasn't loading. Not really dramatic(upper picture).
About hook.dll:
Some Win7 systems have probs to find this dll. Open the folder "Docklets". Inside is a folder named "Sysstats" Copy the hook.dll and paste it to the main folder of Avedesk. Normally this works.
You can also try to rightclick the Avedesk.exe. You should get the option "Solve compatibility issues" You have to run Avedesk in compatibility mode or it isn't working.
And btw. you've heard Lenka with the MS promotion song.:D Shows that parts of the prog have started.
This is how it starts on my system a few minutes ago[link]

I only got several translators. No errors this time. Maybe I installed wrong -.-. And you should change screen recording program. There are some free alternatives out here.

Do you have a recommendation for another one? I would like to have one without such a big logo in the center of the screen.

I'm using CamStudio 2.6b. It's pretty good for me.

So ok what if we have windows 8. I'm kind of curious on getting this so I can make an xbox related start screen what do you think?

Hmm maybe it might be too far out of my capabilities.
