Windows 7: How di I change boot animation and text?

How di I change boot animation and text?

Hey! So I have been wanting to change my boot/startup logo from the default windows logo with "starting windows" and Microsoft text.

So after many google attempts i have stumbled upon an application, BootUpdater. This program supposedly can easily change the windows animations and is exactly what i am looking for... except when i attempt to run it nothing happens.
Nothing.

No error, not blocked by antivirus, no unresponsive program. Nothing

I have tried running as administrator and then it gave the default admin popup, but after i clicked ok, nothing.

I double click it and absolutely nothing happens.

I have seen tons of videos or post about this application working but it doesnt work for me.

So im wondering if there are any programs out there / anyone who can create one or even fix the old one i attempted to use.

And if not, a guide on how to change the boot animation and text (which is understandable and i can actually do without messing up)

Here is the boot updater website Coder for Life - Windows 7 Boot Updater v11 Alpha Released

I am very frustrated with this and if anyone could help it would be appreciated

Was going to suggest compatiblity mode, though looks like it's meant for windows 7 based on askVG. If explorer is closed it may have problems, happens rarely to me but it does happen. Sometimes it's the network framework as well. Weird stuff.

Could try this How To Change Windows 7 Boot Screen Animation - door2windows guy doesn't use deviantart anymore and has a download manager you'll have to go through two sets of 4 screens with mal/bloatware like most software distributors these days. So be prepared to be anoyed but it should work. I haven't updated windows 7 at all, so I do receive framework errors from his stuff here and there. No viruses or anything like that though from the actual program.

Hey! I actually recently downgraded from windows 8, and had absolutely no drivers or software (other than default) installed and now that i think about it, i dont think i have .net framework! Whoops! This may be the main issue, i will come back to you once it is installed and whether the issue is gone or not.
