Hello

Thank you very much for this app, and your great work :thumbup

Not very important, but in the start menu options (French), it will be possible to have like that?

For "Redémarrer" et "Mettre en veille"

Currently, it is like that

Windows 8 renamed some of the options - eg. it's now Sign out instead of Log off, and at least in Slovenian, the translation changed accordingly. You can see that these things changed in the classic shutdown dialog - click an empty part of the desktop or taskbar and press Alt+F4, then check the drop-down entries.

Yeah sometimes I confuse my fiance when I tell her to log out or reboot. :D

Ok but it's possible to have

Redémarrer

-----------------

Veille

and not

Veille

Redémarrer

Have a separator bar between Redémarrer and Veille (for clarity, like Windows 7)

Thanks

One more interesting feature request.

Metro Apps can be used in the 1/5 of the screen mini mode, is it possible to have WIn+Tab switching mini side apps and not covering desktop ?

StartIsBack 2.0RC3

http://www.startisback.com/StartIsBack_setupRC.exe

This is the last RC. If no important bugs arise, that will be Release version. Just a few translations missing.

What's new:

- StartIsBack is now configurable by group policy. It was already 100% compatible with Windows 7 policy but now all StartIsBack options are fully configurable / restrictable with group policy.

Download group policy template: http://www.startisback.com/GroupPolicy.zip

- It also has a setting to enable StartIsBack in Safe Mode (SOFTWARE\StartIsBack\"EnableInSafeMode"=1)

- You can activate StartIsBack license online automatically from command line: StartIsBackCfg.exe /activate [/elevated] YOUR-LICENSE-KEY-NUMBER

I should write a Deployment Guide soon.

That aside, release contains few minor fixes and improvements. Just a few small steps left to 2.0 release.

This is going way beyond what I was expected when I bought the app. Go go go Tihiy :thumbup

Is it possible to create a "Metro Apps" folder in "All Programs" with app shortcuts for faster access so we don't have to add them manually after every re-install? (see my photo link below).

Excuse me, but such folder ('Start Apps') is already created by default in 2.0. :o

Just a slight addition to your "Install Group Policy.txt" for those with newer servers. Those policy files go in:

\\<yourdomainname>\SYSVOL\<yourdomainname>\Policies\PolicyDefinitions

So far no problems with the GPs. I'll keep turning them on and off so make sure each does it's job.

Tell me the following:

- What install type are you using (per user or per pc)

- What setting 'Start Apps' is (configuration - Start Menu - Start Apps)

- Does searching for Weather (for example) find modern app

- You can also check if StartIsBack32.dll/StartIsBack64.dll have version 2.0.0.3.

Ok, I re-installed using the "Install for everyone" and now the Start Apps shows up..:thumbup

btw, What is the silent install flags or switches on version 2.0RC3 to install for everyone? The old /silent switch no longer works

if I use /S it prompts for the install for me or everyone and stops there..

I've explored this and this happens only when UAC is totally off (EnableLUA = 0) or you're in unrestricted admin mode. In this mode Modern apps don't work so Start Apps folder is not needed. Or not? Please explain your UAC settings (and other settings knowing you're big registry tinkerer).

Well I am the unrestricted Built-in Admin but my UAC is turned off, so it was the UAC , hopefully this will help the next user with this issue .. Thanks for the quick response

Hey.. you didn't respond to my second question on my above post.. I pre-install all my apps unattended in Windows 8 (don't mess with post-installs much) so this is important to me to be able to run it silent ..

What is the silent install flags or switches on version 2.0RC3 to install for everyone? The old /silent switch no longer works from your other version..

if I use /S it prompts for the install for me or everyone and stops there..

Same switches are working:

/silent for user install

/elevated /silent for machine install

You need to run explorer.exe after silent installation.
