How to use Devian's Pie Dock in Win7/Vista

How to use Devian's Pie Dock in Win7/Vista:

Have you ever wanted that cool pie dock in other one that isn't xp, well you can, and it's pretty easy. Just download the pie dock (It can be downloaded from here)

1-Now, extract the doc.exe file to any place. (I recommend desktop for easier access)
2-Now right click the icon, and click on properties.
3-Go where it says compatibility and check de box that says: "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and select "Windows XP Service Pack 2" OR "Windows XP Service Pack 3" (Without the commas)
4- There you go, have Devian's Pie Dock running in Windows 7/Vista

^ Kinda, sorta cool, but not even close to the program that Circle Dock: The Open Source Circular and Spiral Dock for Windows is.

With CircleDock, you can have it spin via the mousewheel, is almost infinitely configurable (with center button, backgrounds and layers upon layers of links/icons) - and it's light on resources.

Not trying to one-up you, superjose...it's just that you may not have known about CircleDock and it's abilities.
