One more thing, you will have to install a build from scratch for this to work. If you have not run in cmdlines.txt and you log in you cannot then run the tweak. It needs to be done before anyone logs in.

I'm sory but what is that and how do I use it. It does not look like a reg file. Is it a vbscript? or a cmd file or what I dont quite recognize it.

I already understand how to ue cmdlines.txt and use it allot.

So I assume this method could be used for other registry tweaks...

I am going to be fireing it up in just a few minutes. I did quite a few updates to myt install and it'll be quite interesting to see what happens.

I'll take screenshots for you all again.

This is the one I realyl want to see working though. I alos added a bunch of other tweaks this way to so I'm hoping it will work out good.

Works perfectly... Only problem is that when you get the hex code make sure you get it with the correct length. I got my value from my computer and it has a length for 7 icons so when I started it up it had 7 icon length quickbar for the 3 default icons that are there. If you plan on putting shortcuts there make sure you have the correct length set.

I'm a bit lost here of how to apply this tweak. After you guys tested and learn it how to apply, can someone re-explain this for those who having a hard time like me? Thanks in advance. :)

Kenneth in your $OEM$ folder you need a cmdlines.txt file. In the cmdlines file for example:

[COMMANDS]

".\INSTALLS.CMD"

In the Installs.cmd file for exmaple:

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

CLS

@echo off

ECHO.

ECHO Intel Application Accelerator

ECHO Please wait...

start /wait D:\\Updates\\iaa23_enu\\Setup -s -f1"D:\\Updates\\iaa23_enu\\setup.iss"

ECHO Finished...

ECHO.

regedit /s d:\misc\tweaks\qlb.reg

Exit

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

You can go one of two ways with the tweak you can either put it in a reg file somewhere else or you can use the posted cmd script within the installs.cmd. To use the cmd script it will look like this:

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

CLS

@echo off

ECHO.

ECHO Intel Application Accelerator

ECHO Please wait...

start /wait D:\\Updates\\iaa23_enu\\Setup -s -f1"D:\\Updates\\iaa23_enu\\setup.iss"

ECHO Finished...

ECHO.

ECHO Quick Launch

ECHO Please wait...

It will work in a reg file because at the setup screen we are using the default user ntuser.dat file.

regedit /s d:\misc\tweaks\qlb.reg for example.

If you dont want to do that then put it in the cmd file like:

reg load HKU\TempUser "C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\ntuser.dat" for example

We have to remove the \ and , because reg command wont work with them. Both work it is a matter of preference. To have another reg file is one more file to worry about :) I use the reg file because I use the details view and status bar tweak as well. To convert without \ , is a pain :rolleyes: and I figure more of those kind of tweaks will come. So just leaving it open for future changes.

SOOPAFLY if your refering to the taskbar buttons being clumped together that is:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced]

"TaskbarGlomming"=dword:00000000

0 is off 1 is on.

The following sections handles what your looking for. Set your windows like you like them, and then go to the registry and export them, then import through cmdlines.txt and it should work.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Streams]

Snooz, thanks for re-writing a more thorough guide on this. *hug with a beer for you* :D:rolleyes::)

From what you are saying, it doesn't matter if you remove the "/" mark or not if you are using the tweak in a registry file, right?

The method that you mention in using to load the tweak into the Default User ntuser.dat. Is it possible to import a registry file directly into the Default User ntuser.dat from another user account or adminstrator account when using Windows normally but not during the installation?

-Kenneth

\ , to *.reg file, no \ , to reg command in dos :D

For you other question open a cmd box and type:

reg /?

It will give you all the different commands. I do not know if it is possible.
