Could you please do the same for tmp files too?

There was only one temp file in my laptop's folder. There were 6 in my PC. I have attached them all in a zip. The laptop one is clearly marked.

The upload doesn't seem to be working, I don't know why. Wait, I'll keep trying.

Turns out there are minor differences like language pack en-gb vs default and some patches for your PC version (KB2120976, KB2300535).

Well, lets investigate my last hypothesis: registry settings.
I have made two files: one for your laptop and one for desktop.
I want you to run them accordingly - laptop.bat on laptop and pc.bat on pc.

Each of them will create a folder C:\SF2013
PM me those files, if you do not want to expose them in public.

If you ever encounter an error running these scripts, please start them as administrator.
But for me it works as a standard user.

I don't appear to be able to send private messages. Is the information contained in these files sensitive? Would it compromise my computer's security?

Hello rfws,

You should now be able to send PMs and VMs.

Thank you, Brink!

Among sensitive info these files will have full paths to your pictures and videos folders like C:\Users\YOUR_USER\Pictures
Other than that it has only Photo Gallery settings. You can look for yourself - open those reg files in notepad.
(Folders will be shown in hex format (several lines of numbers)).

Thanks for doing that Brink.

Neutron16, I've had a look at the files in Notepad, and I don't really understand what I'm looking at, but it can't do any harm to send them to you, so I've sent them as private messages. I couldn't see any way of attaching files to private messages, so I just copied and pasted! There does seem to be some difference between the two files.

I have checked out your files. It turns out sub-keys for slideshow settings and viewer settings are different.

Here is the script. Run it on donor computer. It will dump those settings into two files: slide_show.reg and viewer.reg

You need to copy them to target computer and run them there.
UAC window will popup, click yes, then another window - click yes, then - OK. Running them like this will import settings into registry.

Before importing I would close all Windows Essentials programs and after importing I would restart computer just in case.

Okay, I've done that and restarted. Unfortunately it hasn't made a difference to the way the slide show works. Thanks for all your help though.
