"I'm a PC, and Windows 7 was my idea." Such is the nature of the current incarnation of Microsoft Windows, the incarnation we know as Windows 7. For a time, I was content with using the previous incarnation of the OS, known far and wide as Windows Vista. But later on, in comes this new version that has become accepted far and wide as a relevant OS, just like the predecessor before that and the predecessor before that and the predecessor before that. There is something about Microsoft Windows that makes you say: this is what computing is all about.

That being said, I like the tool that you brought out here on deviantART. Now users will get to customize their own start orbs and have fun with it. I can't wait to use this baby. Five stars across. This was badly due.
What do you think?

this is a brilliant tool. Microsoft will do all they can to make the UI better, and yet it is the ability to customize the interface with tools like these that make it the best.

This tool is also extremely easy to use, and so it needs almost no input from a developer for users to be able to work it, which is more than can be said for some tools.

The program itself has an intuitive UI , and the wide vareity of options included lets individual users change the start orb in whatever way they want. Keep up the good work, Kishan Bagaria!

I'm sorry about that. The apps were optional, clicking Accept in the installer installed them. You can easily remove the apps from Programs and Features in Control Panel. If you provide more info on what isn't working/what error messages are you receiving, I will be able to assist you further.

The crapware-laden installer was a shitty move, Kishan. Why?

"Nowadays, it’s almost impossible to download any kind of free software without the installer trying to sneak some other piece of junk on to your system. Installers have become almost a puzzle game within themselves, in which the user tries to figure out the consequences of pressing a button."

I of course saw red flags as soon as I saw it was a .exe...but not everyone does. It isn't fair.

I don't have a good feeling in general about this, wished the experience was better but I'm doing it for the same reason as mentioned in that article. If there was a better way to monetize free software, I'd definitely choose that over this.

When i load the image (.png or .bmp) simply the application quits or the explorer restarts.

(I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit & Windows 7 Professional 64 bit)

That's strange. Please try the following steps:

1. Restart and close all apps.

2. Make sure your anti-virus isn't interfering. Disable it until the app's work is done.

3. Right-click the app and select "Run as administrator".
