Windows 7 Super Bar
Why will the MA3 executable not let itself be pinned to the Windows 7 Super Bar?

Jim Sachs 09-04-2009 07:21 AM

Not having seen Windows 7, I don't really know what a Super Bar is, but one possibility is the filename. If you rename it as an .exe file instead of a .scr file, does it change anything?

I assume you are referring to the start menu in Windows 7. You cannot pin a scr file to the start menu. It will have to be exe file.

That's the reason. Must be an exe.

Right, If I change the MarineAquarium3.scr file to an exe then I can add it to the Superbar, BUT, If I right click on the desktop and select Personalize and go to Screensaver, it does not appear in the screensavers list and will not let me use MA3 as the default screensaver. If I alter the file back to an scr then I can have it as the default screensaver but it won;t let me put it on the superbar.

Any ideas guys?

Windows looks for the extension, and treats the file accordingly. You could just make two copies, using an .exe for one and .scr for the other.

Here is something that may be of interest:

From this hyperlink, you can Download Seven Transformation Pack 2.0. and
have your system act, look and sound similar to Windows 7 - that is scheduled for release October 22nd.

As it makes some changes to your system, it may be wise to create a new System Restore point before installing the new software, even though the program does offer you the choice to switch back when (and if) you choose to.

Make a shortcut to it on desktop, then pin shortcut to superbar, see if that works better. Jim Kraz

Thats what I was trying. It'll pin it when the shortcut is pointing to an exe, just not when pointing to a .scr!

Something Fishy is definitely going on!!!!!!!!

Has anyone tried the seven transformation pack ? Does it eat a lot of resources ( i.e. will a modest XP PC be able to run it ) ?

You can visit JCXP Forums for support and discussion regarding the Windows 7 Transformation Pack.

If it does not agree with your system or when you want to be rid of it, you can use this to help uninstall it (367 bytes) - log in required. The file comes from here.

acting and looking like win 7 is not the same as actualyl being win 7 so not sure how useful that is for developers. It is a nice treat though.

I have been "customized" my pc almost 10 years. Transformation Packs is the least I would like. Mind you,it overrides default of system's registry,not for novice whom doesn't know how to undo afterwards.Sorry,if my tone was too intimidated.

10 years ago as in past tense? or you've been "customizing" it for 10 years?

I think Celine, being Taiwanese, uses translation software to communicate with the English speaking world. :)

I could be wrong, but some of her posts have been so intriguing and used such unusual language, that I think it must be true.

celine 09-07-2009 10:08 PM

Well, henemly. My grammar still need improve it and I am not in keen “customizing” my pc lately. The first time I have customized my pc was with Windowblinds which back to 1999. :D

Naw, Mark, again, I am not use “translation software” whatsoever. I did use Google and Yahoo for spelling and vocabulary that I don’t know how to express from Chinese to English though. :o

Wizwad 09-08-2009 03:59 AM

I apologise, Celine. You do very well! Certainly far better than I would speaking any oriental language! :)

celine 09-08-2009 05:33 AM

Thanks the compliment,it's no biggy.

Marian Nichols 09-08-2009 10:43 AM

I am going to try Win 7, but I didn't think it had been officially released, are you using the beta version?

Celine, i have no problem understanding you but then we talk a lot, don't we.

rctneil 09-08-2009 12:11 PM

Nope, using RTM version
