    I used the same file for 7000 that I used for 6956. It is an Orbit30 file - not sure where I got it.

    ETA - I have gotten rid of the watermark and Send Feedback using same files as I did for 6956 - BUT - I now have the can't close/minimize windows issues as some had with other builds - another challenge.

    QUOTE from orbit30:

    In 6956 patch replace the user32.dll.mui's with ones from latest build:)

    Sorry he also mentioned to edit them first..

    found the regkey !


    save the following info to a .reg file, and run it ;)
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "FeedbackToolEnabled"=dword:0000000
    "FeebackToolEnabled"="0"

    I don't know what this line is for :confused:
    Code:
    "FeebackToolEnabled"="0"
    Its not part of the registry.

    If you add a "d" to make it
    Code:
    "FeedbackToolEnabled"="0"
    It does the same as the first line.

    If leave it out the "Send Feedback" links still disappears. :)

    Hello,
    I just downloaded the Win7_7000build torrent and successfully upgraded my Win7_6956build, without a hitch. But, NO ACTIVATION WORKS. Either with Orbit-30 Patch for 6956 or the one downloaded from Rapidshare.After each restart, the '30 days to activate' screen appears. Please tell me how to replace the user32.dll.mui with the one from the latest build. There seems to be only the dll file but not the mui file in 7000build. Or, please guide if another activation patch or method or key is working. Thanks.

    A cleaner/better way to get rid of it without adding things to the registry is to open regedit and browse to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

    Find a key called "Feebacktoolenable" which has 3 by default, change it to 0 and logoff/reboot and the links will be gone.

    Be sure to have UAC to level 1 or higher, as gadgets do not work with UAC disabled.

    I finally got the gadgets to work with the UAC disabled - you need to copy 4 files from the 6801 version to the 7000 version

    Program Files - Windows Sidebar:
    settings.ini
    sidebar.exe

    Program Files - Windows Sidebar - en-US:
    sbdrop.dll.mui
    Sidebar.exe.mui

    I am using files from the 32 bit part of 6801 64 bit.

    This was not my discovery:

    I don't think there is a "sidebar" in Win 7, like there was in Vista. None of the Win 7 versions I've had had one.

    In Vista you could affix the gadgets to a sidebar - in Win 7 they are free to roam around the desktop.

    I think there are some Vista leftovers in Win7 that don't work. Look in Program Files - Windows Mail is there - but I don't think it is an executable program.

    Sounds plausible:)

    but.... take a look at the following directory:
    C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar

    Why should they keep a complete directory while its useless/not needed anymore ?

    Why is the Windows Mail directory under Program Files? - I think we have to remember these are not RTM versions.

    Windows and Women both start with "W" - I know very little about either - I love'm both.

    If you guys look abit closer you'll see that "wordpad.exe" is still in the "\Program Files\Windows NT\" folder.

    99% of Windows users don't even know these folders exsist, so as the saying goes "don't fix what ain't broken" ;)

    Me thinks the "look a little bit closer" is what got us into all this mess -

    my new motto - "use, don't look"
