    Just tested startisback on this windows 8 service pack aka blue and cant belive that wont show start button on taskbar.Tried restart explorer and restart windows,and wont boot directly to desktop,and still wont show start button.Also tried classic shell and start8,but the the problem remained the same.
    Probably this is the end of start button and start menu as we know.Porbably in next windows we dont see desktop if windows 8 experience success.:(

    You cannot expect start menu replacement tools to work with a new build of Windows without them first being updated to work with it.

    They just need to update their software or something. HP's Quick start works fine with Blue

    There's no start menu code left in Windows Blue, so StartIsBack won't work as is. o_O

    ex7forW8 is an alpha / beta build of Startisback. If the final doesn't work, I'm pretty certain it will not work.

    Does Startisback still do the explorer replacement thing?

    In any case, it doesn't hurt to actually try instead of assume :) I can't get a hold of the blue leak atm or I'd just try myself.

    The older ver of Classic Shell is working fine. (ie: ClassicShellSetup_3_5_0)

    I would post a screen shot of my desk top but not sure how to. If someone would let me know the key combination to take a snap shot I will post it.

    Tried that...Does not work, nothing happens. I know there is a key combination to take a snap shot of your desktop but I can not remember it.

    Not much is new so far in 9364.
    Can not activate it. No kms, no hack, no loader, not even MS.
    KMS through CMD (slmgr) does allow you to change server but key comes back as blocked.
