I'm trying to reinstate Metro in Win7 explorer in order to fix parts dependant on Metro UI.

And MSFT is angry about you. I've posted a link and a picture of Win8 with your startmenu and 1 hour later the topic was deleted in the technet forum. Again you see the censorship against all users who don't like metro.

Though I fear if MS went so far as to delete that thread, they may go a step further and ship an "update" to Windows 8 RTM to ensure only a signed Windows 8 binary will run or something like that.
Unrelated to this project but replacing Taskmgr.exe and Taskmgr.exe.mui from 8 with 7's also brings good old Task Manager for those who can't stand the new one with Metro clutter.

Both "Pin to Start" and "Pin to Taskbar" work perfect. (Edit: I mean the Pinning on Right click context.)
"Use large icons" in Start Menu properties doesn't work, the icons still display small, but I think it's OK.
Thanks for making this patch, Tihiy. I decide to use this explorer a few more days to see if there is anything else to complain!

Why didn't you tell me something like this:
Adding icons to Start Menu of explorer 7 is also adding tiles on Start Screen of explorer 8.
Deleting icons on Start Menu of explorer 7 is deleting tiles on Start Screen of explorer 8 too.
And ... I am searching for the way to get back the Desktop tile now!
