Hi,

I was happy to see someone continue Classic Shell. Just a feature request for future versions: The ability to set "Auto Arrange" as the default.

I'm hoping to release it in the next couple of weeks. Great! I'll be looking forward to that. GaryK Hi, Great job on 4.2.1! Thanks! Two questions: 1) Please can you point me to instructions for exporting a settings file on one machine and then importing it into another machine? 2) Is there any way ...

Brilliant!
It's amazing how things that make small changes in the everyday world make a big change in someone's everyday life. Classic Menu is one such change. It shines!

Thanks! No pressure, just curious, is there an ETA on a release date? Are we looking at a few days, a few weeks, a few months?

Hi, Is there a way via a command line or script to import a settings file? I have about thirty Win7/Enterprise PCs whose settings I want to update. I have set up a system the way I want it and have exported a settings file. I know I can import the settings file individually at each workstation, but ...

It would be useful to me to compare notes: When you are off the domain, are you logging in with a local-machine profile or with the domain profile? Also, my delay comes back if I've been away from the workstation for several minutes. Does your delay return after some minutes when the workstation is...

I don't know how Windows stores the locations of all system folders. Some are in the registry (user files, pictures) but others may be stored in some system files. In the next version I will try a different approach to determine the locations of the system folders, which may or may not fix your pro...

According to the dump file, the start menu is trying to figure out if the current folder is one of the system folders. It is likely that the system is trying to find the location of all such folders (start menu, control panel, user documents, etc.) before it can tell if mine is one of them. Search ...

First, I think the problem's on my end, not with Classic Shell, so I appreciate your giving up your time to think about it. What I'm saying is that there are no shortcuts (nor mapped drives) that access this path. There were once; this workstation was once part of a domain that accessed \\TSServer\...

Hi. First of all, as it's my first post, many thanks for your useful utility. So I'm sorry to let you know that I have the exact same problem. My workstation is part of a domain. The menu opens fine when I'm connected to the network. When I'm on the road, I have a huge delay the first time the menu...

Looks like it is trying to resolve a network path, and that takes a long time (maybe because the path is invalid or inaccessible). Does \\TSServer\Users mean anything to you? Maybe you have a link to a network resource in your start menu, and at that time it is either disconnected or you don't have...

It just occurred to me--would you like to see a dump when there is no delay because the VPN is connected?

Attached is a procdump with the VPN connected.

No, use Explorer.exe. ClassicStartMenu.exe is only the process that loads the menu and injects the DLL into Explorer.exe. Procdump1 is from classicstartmenu.exe. Procdump2 and 3 are both from explorer.exe. Please let me know if you need anything else. The delay I'm describing is present the first t...

Hi, Using Classic Start Menu on Win7 Enterprise, I'm getting a 10-12 second delay when clicking Start/Programs, What is confounding me is that the delay is not present when my PPTP VPN connectoid is active. IOW, if I have connected my Win7 workstation (which is part of a workgroup) to my Domain Cont...
