Ever since Windows 10 made the OS less customizable and a pain to use, Ivo has lost interest in actively developing it due to other important projects and I have lost interest in testing it on Windows 10 so Classic Shell is in maintenance mode. New features and new releases will be very slow or unl...

So far I have enjoyed the Classic Shelle start menu replacement since Windows 8 / Server 2012 and would be sad to let it go: It's deployable (MSI), customizable, likable, usable and a lot more! But the recent Windows 10 (1703) issues it seems like we have to make a new decision. Having explorer.exe ...

Just a little update from my busy schedule: We just deployed 25 Windows 10 computers. 8 Intel NUC (older/reinstalled) and 17 new Lenovo. The issue seems to be unrelated to brand/sound card. I happens perhaps once per hour +/- with our normal workload. Thread count is 800+ when it happens and restart...

PS: I know this is a free tool (unless we donate), so I have not expectations or requirements for support/fix. I would however be nice to know if somebody is looking in to this issue from a developer side of things. I would love to continue using ClassicShell, but if no solution is "around the ...

Hi all, Sorry for the delay - things are busy here. Today I did test another PC (Intel NUC). This does not have the RealTek HD Audio sound card. 100% same experience: After Classic Shell was installed Windows became unresponsive after approx 30 minutes. As soon as explorer.exe was restarted things w...

We're having exact same issues as this on both Windows 10 and Server 2016.



Interesting.

Perhaps we can exclude the sound driver assumption if you can confirm your Server 2016 does not have a sound card?

Thx. I will try to dig into the issue next week. Plan: * Install CS 4.3.1 with start menu feature only (this is actually all we need) and verify problem is still present. * When problem occurs check number of threads for Explorer. * Test renaming/uninstalling Realtek sound driver. * Report back to t...

Has this issue been narrowed down to the Start menu component? Have you tried installing only the Start menu and omitting Classic Explorer and IE components? Just did some tests: Installed Classic Shell with only the Classic Explorer feature. The threads stay low. Installed Classic Shell with only ...

We just deployed a few Windows 10 PC's (Dell 3050). Windows is version 1703 + CU from 2017-08-10. Classic shell was installed by extracting the MSI file from the installer and deploying it with a GPO. We have done the same for all our Server 2012 with version 4.3.0 (now being updated to 4.3.1 by rem...
