Willow Start Menu Orbs by EndsOfInvention Willow Start Menu Orbs by EndsOfInvention

Willow Start Menu Orbs


For Windows 7


Ends of Invention - 2011


Summary

These Start menu orbs were inspired by the "Willow Indicators" dock active application indicators by Endosage. The original indicator set is available here.

If you like this resource, please favourite this set!

Installation

1.) Download the Windows 7 Start Orb Changer from here.
2.) Use the downloaded tool to select the bitmap file included, and click "change".

Credits

"Willow Indicators" - Endosage
"Window 7 Start Orb Changer" - Kishan-Bagaria

If you wish to modify this resource, please feel free to do so but do not redistribute it without my permission.

WARNING: Some users report trouble with setting this indicator - all are running W7 SP1. I believe this is due to the way SP1 interferes with Start Orb Changer, so if you try to use this orb under SP1, you may meet with only sporadic success.

Hm. No idea what's going on. Sorry man, I just made it in Photoshop, I know nothing about how Windows actually uses the image.

using Windows 7 Start Orb Changer from www.door2windows.com/ and like the above said, doesn't work and results in a blank start button. It could be because of the "bit" it was saved in or whatever... You may want to check it out to see if the right format other than bmp is saved correctly...

Belongs to my folder named [Orbs I love cause they look good with all the crap I call "customization of my desktop" and their colors don't hurt my eyes].

Thanks :-)

Hi its me the third time ;-) I would really like to use your start orb with SP1 and I think the problem is, that the backround isn't transparent..... Is it possible that you can send me your orig. .psd file? That would be awsome :-)
greets

:iconendsofinvention:
EndsOfInvention Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2011
Well, I'm sorry but I'm not too comfortable with the idea of sending out my PSD file, but I do sympathise with your issues - I tell you what - I'll replace the background with some lurid colour like bright magenta or something - then you can open the PNG in photoshop and remove the transparency yourself relatively easily - I hope that's an acceptable compromise.

However, I'm currently away from my desktop computer at the moment, for a good 4 days or so - and that's where the resource is located. Can you send me a message after wednesday with your email address? I'll be happy to work with you to sort out any issues. If we manage to get it working, I'll also update the file and fully credit you with the port.

Do you have SP1 as well? I know I already went over this once, but I've heard that start orb changer has spordaci success with SP1.

Partial credit goes to you! It was your Wave start orb that was my standard for a long time, and that originally inspired me to do this mod. Really, it was you that got me into 7 visual styling in the first place, so - thank you! :)

Sollution?

EndsOfInvention Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2011
No idea, mate. I can't debug that since I don't have Windows SP1, and since it seems to be working well enough on Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit for a lot of people, I'll hazard to say it could be a problem with your machine. I know it works just fine on administrator accounts on both x86/x64 Windows 7 w/o SP. Be advised, I have tested this with the bottom taskbar ONLY. I have not tried this for other taskbar locations, so if you're using the taskbar anywhere but standard, I don't think I can help you.

Nicely done! does this work on small taskbars as well?
Reply
:iconendsofinvention:
EndsOfInvention Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2011
I only use small taskbars. I only thought to test it on the big versions after I had made it, so yes, it most assuredly works on small taskbars. However, I haven't tested it for taskbars situated anywhere except the default (bottom) position.
