StartOrbz v3.1.a by Blizo StartOrbz v3.1.a by Blizo
December 14,2010
Public version 3.1a
-Added ability to enable/disable the start tips with regfiles.
-When using Visa, it would still try and apply userframes and start tips. (I missed this one in 3.1)

These are the only two changes in 3.1a. If 3.1 worked for you, then you should NOT install this. Well you can if you want but there is no new features.
I also included StartOrbz 2.1, since this loaded up fine for most people.

There really isnt much more to do with StartOrbz, so only expect bug fixes. If you have suggestions, please let me know. As always, post any bugs, comments, or suggestions.

Hi Blizo, first I really want to thank you for making this program. I tried it and really enjoyed it. But whenever I restarted my pc, the usual orb was restored and I need to re-apply it again. Any idea how to make it permanent? Thanks!

Hi there, Blizo. I really enjoy your program, StartOrbz, but now I am very leery to use it, as a week ago, it caused me a lot of trouble, as it could not or would not re-open Explorer, after it closed it to apply the orb I had made.
A couple of problems I feel you need to know about this version of StartOrbz is that much of the time when saving a newly made orb, the program saves it inside the same folder with other orbs I had made using the same xml file, so when I go to select a specific orb to either edit it, or apply it, even though the image showing is the orb I want, after pressing my mouse key to select it, a totally different orb shows up, so I click cancel, but can never get the orb I wish to work with to show.
Due to the above problem, is why I think the program could not restart Explorer. One problem after another arrived for me that day when StartOrbz did this to me, which ended up in taking me 3 days before I was able to repair my Windows 7 64-bit OS, and a mighty dollar or $200 to repair the PC enough to sign onto it.
Please do some updates to this program soon, Blizo, as it is so very delightful, enjoyable, and I do love having the ability to make my own orbs in the fashion that I wish.

Thank you, and take care.

Windows 8.1 stores the start button separately for the default state and the hover/pressed state. This is the reason why Windows 7 start orbs doesn't work with it without requiring manual editing.

Thanks for the suggestion though, I will try to implement an auto conversion feature.

This is the best start orb maker for windows 7.

I have a question though, could you make a windows 8.1 version, as for some reason if I use a windows 7 start orb file and load it into Windows 8.1 start orb changer it reads the file differently so I get a triple logo for each part of the start button. Basic,hover,pressed.   But yeh I love your Windows 7 Version it is the best out there for making start buttons easy.
