Ok now i'm confused. The files needed to run the application, are they all in the same folder? If not, that's the problem.

When you click the change orb button, it's supposed to launch a windows prompt for you to browse and select an orb from a folder. Once you've selected an orb, windows explorer will automatically restart and your new start orb will be applied.

The problem is with admin rights (UAC). If you dont "run as admin" then the program isnt allowed to take ownership of the files therefore its doesnt have the rights to rename, delete, or change anything.


Right click on the .exe and click on security and then click run as administrator. Save the changes and try again.

Hope it helps.

I tried 'Run as admin' before, and that way it deleted explorer so i had to manually change the file extension back from the explorer.old to get it back. But when tried it again it just worked!
Thanks for your time guys
