Registry (?) help required plz

Post by freakneck » 07/21/07, 1:29 pm

Greetings,

Silly problem here that I could use some help with. I'm having a little trouble getting XP to properly accept my shell program as 'the' windows shell.

In the past all worked fine, all that was required was to set HKLM/Software/Microsoft/WindowNT/WinLogon, setting Shell = my App.exe

Now, when I do that, it still starts my app as the shell, but when starting Explorer, it now starts the desktop instead of bringing up Explorer, the file manager. Subsequently running Explorer does bring up the file manager.

It's been a long time, so maybe I had some registry key(s) set that I forgot about.

In the past this had worked properly, and this issue seemed to start after I installed, then uninstalled LiteStep.

Any tips/ideas ?

Thanks,

fN

To tell you the truth, Freak, I'm a little rusty on my shell replacement ledgerdermain....

Possibly try this, or some of the links from it?
