Been giving KM 1.6 beta a run for it's money on a new a 64bit machine with Windows 8 (which I HATE! In fact I'm thinking about tossing Windows 8 out the window.
) I'm using ClassicShellSetup_3_6_6
but still the Start/Modern screen comes back occasionally, maybe I just need to keep experimenting with the settings. Frankly, I think MS took a perfectly simple and efficient line of OS's and turned it into a big PITA, especially when they licensed OEM's to pre-install Window 8 on desktops.
I've been running KM 1.6 beta with default settings. I had some problems with it crashing often but it seems
this crashing may have had something to do with Google Chrome being installed on the machine. I downloaded and installed Chrome from several different sources but KM 1.6 beta kept crashing. Like FF on my machines, Chrome kept stealing default status and screwing-up file associations and each time I would uninstall it I had to do a system restoration to fix the problems as changing settings and even running sfc /scannow didn't help. The last time I uninstalled Chrome I even lost IE 10. FF had caused much the same problems on three different machines with different OS's. I guess these big name-browsers just hate me or some kind of setting I use. Anyway, with KM and IE I can do without the browsers.
I'm, going to start customizing 1.6 beta and I am wondering if there is a way to tell what macros will work with 1.6 beta w/o using trial and error. Anyone got the 411 on this?
