Has anything changed in regards to gadget installation? I can't even get a hello world gadget (as per the MSDN example) to install. I've created a .gadget folder with a gadget.xml and .html file inside, zipped it (removing .zip extension) and double clicking on the icon. Nothing's happening.

The only development stuff I can find is for Vista's sidebar gadgets which indicate no change in the W7 development process. I did find a site suggesting setting the charset will break the gadget (so I removed it from the example code) and that still doesn't make it work.

I looked in the installed gadgets folder and found that there are language folders, so I made that change too and still not working.

I downloaded a gadget from the Windows 7 experience site which came packaged as an MSI. Is this how gadgets are installed now? The last time I made one, it was a case of zipping the folder and double clicking it.

I've only had issues installing Gadgets when UAC was disabled.

They are the same .gadget format as Vista I believe.

Windows 7 is pretty much Vista R2. It's not like they are vastly different. Just some minor updates.

There's also the fact that a method like torrents is a more reliable method of downloading. I tried to download the beta directly from MS. The download speed was fine, but the file I got wouldn't install. I checked the hash, and it turned out it was wrong. If I downloaded it from MS again that would have been another 2+ gigs, but I just pointed a torrent at it and it was fixed in 5 minutes. It just had to download the pieces that had been botched.

There's a million reasons not to download from the MS site. I wish MS would kind of embrace torrents for the reliability issue. I realize they have more bandwidth than god, but it's worth nothing if people have to redownload. It's one thing the open source community has really gotten right, and companies like Blizzard also employ it well.

If MS provided an official torrent, I'd download from them in a heartbeat just to know the 2+ gigs I'm downloading don't have to be redownloaded if something goes wrong. Torrents are also a bit easier to resume, and you can also more easily set a download speed cap if that's your thing. A lot of people are used to managing torrents at this time from a separate program, but I don't think http download managers have quite the same penetration. Most people just aren't downloading 2+ gigabyte files regularly over http, but it's commonplace over torrents.

Microsoft should do something like what Blizzard does.

Every WoW patch is on a Torrent tracker as well as HTTP. The Blizzard patcher that loads up is just a simplified BitTorrent client.

Microsoft should do the same thing. Offer an EXE download link to grab their customized torrent client (for those who just want to download the ISO and don't want to mess with anything else), AND offer a link to the .torrent file, for those who just want to use their already-installed Torrent client.

Just spent ~5 hours attempting an install. After numerous freezes and blue screens (the various internet fixes re: ACPI/USBs didn't work), I'm left with XP and 20Gbs of windows 7 files that I can't loving delete no matter what.

Ughh, gently caress this. Having a lovely install experience kills any enthusiasm I have for a new OS.

You need to better become familiar with your hardware and Windows/NTFS permissions.

- To delete the files, give yourself ownership on all items. Make sure to apply to child objects.
- Remove all permissions (to make sure and remove any Deny permissions that may be set). Apply to child objects again.
- Give someone like "Everyone" full permissions. And of course don't forget to apply to child objects.

Now, Windows 7 should NOT blue screen unless something is very wrong. Bad ISO? Bad DVD drive? Bad RAM? System over heating? Dust? Bulging caps? Failing hard drive? Crap drivers?

If you disable "Secure Desktop" (the dimming of the screen), it doesn't lock the rest of the computer.

Secure Desktop use to crash poo poo on me all the time (like TV-viewing applications) until I learned how to disable it.

Windows 7 makes it easy. Just move the slider down 1 notch in the UAC settings. For Vista, you can use XdN Tweaker to turn off Secure Desktop.

Default policy is that shares may not work unless you have a user with a password set.

Also, even if the Share gives them permission someplace, the NTFS permission may be denying them access to that place. Deny always overwrites Allow.

I have disabled UAC at my own peril, but I would re-enable it if it were possible to promote an already running application (or temporarily disable it system wide with a tray icon or something). I get annoyed trying to, for example, unpack a RAR file directly into a Program Files directory after opening it from Firefox, getting the "Access Denied" message, then having to restart WinRAR as admin (or unpacking to a temp directory and copying). Also forgetting to open configuration files in admin mode, editing them, and then not being able to same them is frustrating as well (I constantly do this in Linux too).

NOD32 and common sense seem to keep me virus free though.

The only time I think I've wanted to disable UAC is when I'm customizing my Start Menu. The constant barrage of "are you sure?" and "you said you're sure, do you want to continue?" double prompt for every action gets annoying fast.

Luckily, Windows 7 doesn't have those same prompts. I haven't even been tempted to disable UAC under Windows 7.

I purchased a new drive, so I get to have all my games on a drive separate from Windows.

C:
\Users
\Program Files
\Program Files (x86)
\Windows

D:
\Games

Setting D:\Games to have an owner of "Administrators" and then giving the "Everyone" group full access means I never worry about games triggering UAC because of a protected path issue.

Works great, unless the game had lovely programmers. In the 3 years of using Vista, I've only seen "Warhammer Online" and "Savage 2" trigger UAC for absolutely no reason.
My daughter loves fantasy online games, but I hated that I couldn't let her play Warhammer Online without it prompting for the Admin password on her system every time she tried to load it up.

Bringing up the fact those games trigger UAC needlessly on either of their support forums resulted in many people saying "just disable UAC" and "this is why Vista sucks".
I believe the developers' official stance with Savage 2 is to disable UAC or simply stick with XP.
And that is just great; after over a decade of poo poo programming allowed by Windows, Microsoft tries to fix things only to have developers recommend people use older versions of Windows so they can continue their poo poo programming.

Correct. Aero requires DirectX 9 hardware that supports WDDM functions. Some chipsets that claim DX9 (like some Intel shitsets) don't have all the hardware there, so no Aero.

I have the Cisco VPN client installed in my XP Mode. It connects and works, but only for applications running in XP Mode.

I use it for some work stuff, but I run IE7 in XP mode, as well as Putty or any other application I need to access resources through the VPN.

It only works for apps running in "XP Mode" since the VPN'd network is virtual, and only visible to others using that virtual network.

If XP Mode really is just VirtualPC, then there should be a work-around.

Open XP's Control Panel -> Network settings. It has its own virtual network, right?

That has to be shared, first.
If you're using Cisco VPN, go to its network properties and enable “Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection”.
Then set a static IP for the virtual Local Area Connection. Establish the VPN connection, and then in the Host OS (Win7/64), you have to add Static routes from your real network connection to the virtual local area connection.

I haven't been able to test it on my system with Windows7 and XP Mode (since I purchased one of them Intel CPUs that they decided to disable VT on). I've only done it with VMware, VirtualBox, and VirtualPC. So I don't know for sure if it works in XP Mode (YET).

After sharing the Cisco connection, I set the VirtualPC "Local Area Connection" IP address to 192.168.1.25.
My previous employer had all their stuff on the 10.10.1.0 network.
So, after I shared the virtual network adapter, I ran this in the host/x64:

route -p add 10.10.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.25

So, when I connected via VPN in the guest OS, I could get to the 10.10.1.0 network through it with Apps running on the host/x64 OS.

Of course, part of the purchasing decision was based on the fact that it was one of the "lucky" CPUs that was NOT selected on Intel's "wheel of VT support" - where they spin a big colorful wheel to randomly decide which CPUs have Virtualization Technology disabled.

You need to put a shortcut to whatever app in the All Users start menu, which then shows up in a folder called "Virtual Windows XP applications" under the Virtual PC group in the start menu on the host.

I have several shortcuts and folders there (on the XP Start Menu), only one thing I installed finally showed up on the Start Menu.

Do I need to move things off the Start Menu, and then back on to try and force it to make shortcuts on the Win7 Start Menu?

I couldn't find any way to "force" it to scan the XP Start Menu.

So far, XP Mode seems pretty retarded.

It runs XP in the background (hidden), and the "Virtual PC" application you run is really just a Remote Desktop session to it. It's like running Citrix.
So you never have full control over the VM, can't use ClearType, etc.
And of course you can't pick what applications show up on the Win7 Start Menu.

ClearType and 24bit color (haven't tried 32bit, but its listed to only go up to 24bit for some reason) are both changes you can make in the Registry of XP.

cleartype for RDP:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations]
"AllowFontAntiAlias"=dword:00000001

force RDP to 24bit (it defaults to 16bit in XP mode)

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\Terminal Services]
"ColorDepth"=dword:00000004

then restart XP. When it boots back up, ClearType and 24-bit color should be enabled. So text and icons will look better.
