Windows 7: The color scheme has been changed to Windows 7 Basic


19 Apr 2009   #11

 
 

It would depend on the resources required and for certain environment variables to be in place. If the specific variable (e.g. Standard GUI) is not found/active then the software will compensate where neccessary in order to operate.

Additional: Have just downloaded M2VPlayer & installed on a Vista machine to the exact same effect.

VBA does the same thing. I think it's just something in the way it's programed. You could hack the program, or ignore it the best you can.

you're wrong. It is because the software in question does not know how to make use of the Windows 7 display driver method.

Don't believe me? I did a lot of research when I first replied, and these are some of the links I read through to understand the problem:

Windows Aero - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Desktop Window Manager - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and in particular, the Desktop Window Manager - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia section
Themes when running older applications in Vista - relating to VB apps that are not theme aware....
Windows Vista Aero theme desktop effects are disabled when you run a Java application - relating to older JAVA apps that will not be theme aware....
Vista Enhanced Video Renderer - hardware deinterlacing support? - DVBViewer community forum - explains a little about PowerDVD and the different modes it can use and how only one particular mode is Aero aware....
Why do Vista Aero Enhancements get disabled only during PDVD Blu-ray/HD-DVD playback? - AVS Forum - more details about PowerDVD and Aero, and how newer graphics drivers helped solve this issue (partially) in Vista....
You may experience issues with the Windows Aero feature on a Windows Vista-based computer - the end-all be-all - see near the bottom, Issues 2, 5 and possibly 7.

If you still think it is a Windows 7 problem, my suggestion to you is to format your computer and put XP back on and stop running a Beta OS that you don't fully understand. And I am not being facetious in saying this, I am being *serious*.

It has NOTHING to do with Windows 7.It's the software you are trying to use.

It's the software app using resources that conflict with the Aero theme. It can't be turned off as you so eloquently put it.

The WDDM 1.1 included with Windows 7 is supposed to fix this issue but it won't take effect until the people that write your software update their applications. Of course it didn't happen under XP. XP didn't use the same driver model as Vista/Seven. Understand things before making stupid posts.

If you want a video player that doesn't knock you out of aero, use the k-lite pack with media player classic and set the Output filter to 'EVR custom pres'.

Or, Use Shark007's Windows 7 Codecs and use the Native WiMP....

Actually, I'm afraid you're wrong. I get this error every other day or so if my wallpaper on my 3 displays changes while I'm doing something CPU intensive like compiling a visual studio solution. I'm not using any 3rd party software or media players - it only happens when the wallpaper changes and the machine is overly occupied - not when I'm starting an app or playing a game or watching a movie. Windows 7 should recognize this and not revert the color scheme without asking - or better yet delay the wallpaper change until the CPU usage drops.

IMO, this is a bug with Windows 7.

Recently I've installed WINDOWS 7, after Vista. My tv tuner KWORLD TV878 won't work. I've tried drivers form vista and they were successfully installed but even if tv tuner WORKS, there is no COLOR in picture. After I start PVR PLUS, software for using tv tuner, I've got message from picture. Is there anything I can do to solve this problem?

Hi, I guess I am facing the same prob, kind of.

Sometimes when i watch "no matter what" with VLC the scheme changes to Windows 7 basic. Usually thats no prob at all, I just have to close the programm and it changes to the regular scheme again, but not anymore ->
I close VLC and nothing happens :/ I have to restart the PC and that really sux is there a way (at least) to turn on the regular scheme manually?

Thanks
