Did you upgrade (or clean) 6801 to 6936?

Hi SK,

You will just need to use the Blue Badge Tool Rev 3 for the 6801 build to enable Dekstop Preview (Aero Peak).

Oh, I hadn't thought if you'd run the rev3 of the BlueBadge tool. Thanks Brink....

See if restarting the computer helps any. It's working on my 6801 from this now.

Hi Mitch, I am in the process of a fresh install as we speak, not that I had the issues that you have but I found after a bit of a play some things were messed up like all the library icons were missing, I was unable to rename any files unless I moved them to the desktop and and I could not access disk management. I think I will stick to doing a fresh install from now on.
