Windows 7: Start Orb won't change.

Start Orb won't change.

I've tried several times to change the start orb and it wont change. I added the r .exe to its folder as in instructions and it still wont change. The screen does flicker when I click on an orb file as if its changing it, but its still the original orb. Any ideas???

Did you Run as Admin? Here's the screens I get when I'm changing orbs, No problems.

Is it showing some message ? Then go to devart and download the program again. Dont forget to extract them all in a same file, and then create a shortcut of the .exe to the desktop.

Inform what happend then.

I always had to log to the administrator account to change the orb, then log back onto my normal user account. Try that.
