- New, automated Andrea Borman-proof GUI installer / patcher. Automatically extracts or copies needed Windows 7 files.

rotflmaoslaphandlol.gif Oh man. My poor cat is stuck to the ceiling from when I LOL'd

P.S. absolutely no offense Andrea. Enjoy life and the laughs because it is far too short!

Hi Tihiy -

I have found a minor bug with the ex7forw8 installer.

When trying to install on an en-GB localised install of Win8, the ex7forw8 installer requests the

en-GB Win7 folder which does not exist for Win7.

Renaming the en-US folder to en-GB allows the installation to complete, but the Win7 explorer

is then unable to start until the installed en-GB folder is renamed back to en-US.

There is no en-GB variant of windows 7? Anyway i'll provide en-US fallback.

Apparently not. My locale, keyboard etc. are all set to 'English (United Kingdom)',

but there is only en-US present.

Anyway i'll provide en-US fallback.

Many thanks !

it should be invisible as it is in Windows 7.
You mean as in Windows 8, right?

Yes it is. That show desktop button is invisible in both Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Hey there Tihiy,

I just created an account just to write this and say thanks a bunch load for this!

Been looking for quite a few apps to do this, but this is just awesome!

Does the job (Windows 8 Pro, 64bit) and no more tiles and I have a start button back!

Do lose multiple task bars though on more than one monitor, but I can live with that.

Thanks so much for this - really really awesome!

Version 0.9

http://tihiy.net/files/ex7forW8_0.9.zip

- Tool: accepts en-US mui files as fallback for any language

- Tool: improved open speed (does not try to patch explorer each time)

- Tool: command line options (see scripting guide)

- Explorer7: fixed 'Exit explorer' not unloading explorer.exe fully.

Scripting guide: http://tihiy.net/files/Ex7forW8_scripting.zip

Tells you how to install / uninstall / patch silently. Also add a nice context menu to desktop menu to switch shells on the fly.

NOTE: if you run installer from explorer7, installer will restart explorer.exe elevated which can be undesirable. So better switch back to explorer8 before upgrading.

Screwed up the first transaction and it did everything in Russian, wasn't sure if it went through so did it again.

Hope it helps, thanks again for the app!
